From early rock 'n' roll dreams, to headlining intellectual property on the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

In the latest podcast in our 'In Conversation with Gowling WLG' series, global IP partner Ron Dimock speaks to Randall Rader, former Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and longstanding career IP litigator and patents judge.

What is the real value of IP for new inventions? And, how is the US handling cutting edge patent cases compared to other countries? In this episode, we explore these question and more, including:

  • Rock 'n Roll, Rolling Stone cover ambitions with 'Paul Revere and the Raiders', to headlining the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit for over 25 years;
  • Randall's time as the Chief Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, at the sharp end of IP and patent litigation, before retiring from the bench in 2014;
  • solving patent law problems, harmonising, and putting proper value on IP for every invention;
  • the 'sledgehammer' vs. the 'scalpel', and how the US is 'out of step' with the rest of the world on patent issues;
  • founding the Rader Group, and focussing on arbitration, mitigation, mediation and legal consulting; and
  • Patents as a 'pacemaker' and the complexities of trying patent infringement cases and dispute resolution.
