Mr. Messinger will be speaking as panelist on the topic of "Fulfilling Patent System's Public Notice Function." Experts from academia and the bar will address the extent to which the patent system adequately fulfills its notice function – for example, ensuring that the firms seeking to develop and introduce innovative technologies can obtain clear and reliable information regarding the existence and scope of patent rights that could cover those technologies.
