Mossoff Participates in Intellectual Property Teleforum

On April 11, Professor Adam Mossoff moderated a teleforum entitled "The State of the Patent System: A Discussion with Chief Judge Rader." The Honorable Randall R. Rader is Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which has nationwide jurisdiction in a variety of areas, including patent and trademark cases. 

The event was co-organized by the Federalist Society's Intellectual Property Practice Group and the law school's Center for Protection of Intellectual Property (CPIP), for which Mossoff serves as Co-Director of Academic Programs and Senior Scholar. 

The teleforum, termed a digital "fireside chat," explored a variety of issues in an effort to assess whether the patent system is broken or whether it is fundamentally sound. 

Teleforum calls are 60-minute conference call discussions and debates featuring one or more experts on a topic of the moment, with a live call-in audience. Previously recorded Teleforum calls are posted for download as podcasts on the Federalist Society's Practice Groups Podcasts page.
