Bejin Bieneman Props Up the Disgraced Randall Rader for Litigation Agenda

Bejin BienemanSummary: Randall Rader keeps hanging out with the litigation 'industry' -- the very same 'industry' which he served in a closeted fashion when he was Chief Judge of the Federal Circuit (and vocal proponent of software patents, patent trolls and so on)

ABOUT a month ago we wrote about Bejin Bieneman planning to give a platform to the man who is responsible -- via the courts system -- for a lot of patent trolls and out-of-control patent scope at the USPTO. He was pretty much forced to quit after he had been caught making a mockery of the court he headed (as Chief Judge of the Federal Circuit).



"He was pretty much forced to quit after he had been caught making a mockery of the court he headed (as Chief Judge of the Federal Circuit)."The patent trolls' lobby loves him, no matter the scandals, and this propped-up-by-IAM person is still out there, lobbying and seeking more power in institutions including the USPTO. He's getting all cozy with patent maximalists, as always, and days ago, as expected, they tweeted about it: "For those of you who missed yesterday's webinar, Settlement Strategies, featuring Judge Randall R. Rader, Joseph Dunn, and Thomas Bejin, here is the YouTube recording..."

"Sadly, as we noted some days ago, the "revolving doors" culture is alive and well at the USPTO and US patent courts."So Mr. Rader is not so 'retired' after all, he's just 'hibernating' whilst lobbying. He's looking for ways to get back into the system, even as Director of the USPTO.

Sadly, as we noted some days ago, the "revolving doors" culture is alive and well at the USPTO and US patent courts. We already mentioned David Kappos and Paul Michel four days ago.

There are other such 'webinars' which push an agenda and front groups. How about this upcoming one (2 days from now): "Attend our webinar on patent portfolio monetization on Feb 20, hosted by the Knowledge Group @Know_Group, with speakers from TechInsights, @KnobbeMartens and @Oblon_IP"

"All these echo chamber-type 'webinars' are nothing but marketing; for Rader to participate in these says a lot about Rader."Those are prominent elements of patent maximalism. Don't say patent trolls however; It's nice(r) to say "patent portfolio monetization" (like giving patent for trolls to bully one's competitors). How about terms such as "Asserting Patent Rights" from Watchtroll (the headline from Meredith Addy 3 days ago)? They keep coming up with all sorts of terms like "efficient infringers" and "death squads" (this one is Rader's). Addy said: "While my patent litigation practice represents both patentees and defendants, I remain concerned about developments in our patent laws that undercut protections for innovators. I continue to believe that the playing field is unfairly tipped to accused infringers."

Why does she care? Because she profits from litigation. The more litigation, the more money she makes (no matter if she represents a plaintiff or a defendant). All these echo chamber-type 'webinars' are nothing but marketing; for Rader to participate in these says a lot about Rader. This is why he's kept away from his old job. He can go hang out with patent trolls all he wants, but not while he holds a key position in a high court.
