I will discuss the question of whether four dimensional scale invariant unitary quantum field theories are actually conformally invariant. I will present a complete analysis of possible scale anomalies in correlation functions of the trace of the stress-energy tensor and discuss recent attempts to show that scale invariance implies conformal invariance.
