Messinger Quoted in CNN Story on Ford's Recent Patent

Mike Messinger, a partner in the Vorys Washington, D.C. office, was quoted in a CNN story titled, “The car of the future? Ford applies for patent on car that can automatically repossess itself.”  The story was about Ford filing a patent for a system that allows a car to leave you if you stop making payments.

The story states:

“’Companies apply for patents to protect ideas from being used by others, whether or not they actually use the intellectual property themselves,’ explained patent attorney Michael Messinger, a partner in the Washington, DC, office of the firm Vorys. ‘These processes can take a long time, said Messinger, with lots of back-and-forth.’”
