Legal symposium on Bessen/Meurer book on March 29

For those interested, Paul J. Heald of the University of Georgia has convened a symposium on James Bessen and Michael J. Meurer's book Patent Failure: How Judges, Bureaucrats, and Lawyers Put Innovators at Risk on March 29 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Dean Rusk Hall on North Campus.

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!
