Litigation Quality Patent PatentCast
EPISODE 27 - The Examiner Whisperer - Rambus v Rea

In this episode of the Litigation Quality Patents® Podcast, Craige talks about a case where the Patent Office, in an Inter Partes re-examination, rejected a technology patent by correctly construing most claim terms but improperly ignoring evidence of industry praise and licensing. The federal circuit reviewed the case and upheld the anticipation rejections, but reversed the obviousness rejections. This federal circuit decision continued the trend of emphasizing the importance of objective evidence of non-obviousness. 

Craige's special guests are, Richard Bragg, a Patent Attorney practicing in the Minneapolis area, Mike Heinrich, an attorney and consultant in engineering and intellectual property areas and Dr. John Leighton, an associate attorney at Thompson Patent Law.
