NO

Patents are related to how they are used

There are laws related to how their inventions or discoveries are used

YES

They are not given monetary incentives for any ethical consequences.

Ethics regarding how these inventions and discoveries are used is very subjective and it is very difficult for the scientist to discern right from wrong or to take into account everyone's opinions, therefore ethics regarding how these inventions and discoveries are used should not be the concern of the scientists.

YES

There is a limit to which a scientist has full entity and control to his/her invention.

"He who pays the piper calls the tune". More often than not, scientists carry out the instructions of higher authorities such as the government. Hence, how inventions and discoveries are used are then not the concern of scientists as they are funded by others (ie. the government for example)

Scientists only aim to understand the innate world or solve a problem. The intentions behind their inventions and discoveries are almost never criminal. Therefore, they are not concerned about how they are being used although they may be misused.

NO

It is the scientist that holds the true perfect information of the invention, hence responsibility falls on the scientist(s) to regulate the information they hold as by not doing so, it may lead to serious repercussions.

There is a universal code of ethics whereby scientists have to adhere to. (UNESCO's ethical mandate over Science & Technology). Hence, scientists have to ensure that their inventions/discoveries are contained and do not go out of hand, breaching the universal code of ethics.
