Can Juries Handle Patent Issues?

"The United States is the only country that has a jury decide patent dispute. . . many outside the United States find this 'laughably quaint.'" [Patent Fight Brings Science Into Courtroom, via Law.Com] My personal take on this is juries and courts can and do understand even the most esoteric of issues, as long as the attorneys understand them, and are skilled and diligent enough to translate their understanding in a straightforward way.
