Legal symposium on Bessen/Meurer book on March 29
Heald stated expansively: "Patent Failure is a stunning new work of undeniable importance to anyone interested in intellectual property. This conference will explore the authors' claims that the patent system has fallen short in providing predictable legal boundaries and examine the impli-cations of those claims." [Heald has a J.D. from the University of Chicago, but must have picked up the hyperbolic tendencies elsewhere.]
And, if you guessed Mark Lemley will be there, you would be right!
