Wouldn't the forming of Nylonase be an increase of genetic information seeing that there was no Nylon before 1940 (if I remember correctly) and the amide linkage used (if I remember correctly) is one not seen in biology at all except for the one in nylon.
Meaning that it had to gain completely new genetic information in order to produce nylonase.
