comment What are the limits of applicability of Coulomb's Law?

comment Precision of Coulomb's law
summary: there is (currently) no need/hope for any correction like Einstein gave to Newtons law $F = -GM/r^2 -3GMh^2/(c^2r^4)$ , in its most primitive form

comment Precision of Coulomb's law
while this experiment proves the law to be very precise for high energies, can someone give an estimate of when the law becomes inapplicable for very small charges (e) / large distances?

comment Precision of Coulomb's law
while there might be plausible reasons for the equivalence between measurements at both ends of the spectrum, I am not yet convinced why the quoted high energy measurements would also prove that the formula still holds for very small q and large distances (with the same precision). In gravity measurements at very small scales ( rspa.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/394/1806/47 ) might have confirmed all gravitational laws, whereas measurements at galactic scales might show that something is odd (=> dark matter) ?
