2023 CHINA INITIATIVE
The Rader Group Institute for Judicial Studies is kicking off its 2023 China Initiative with two Intellectual Property programs in two cities, Beijing, and Shenzhen in China from July 5 to July 12, 2023.
The institute was founded by former Chief Judge Randall R. Rader of U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. For over 30 years, Judge Rader has been a leading thought leader in the field of intellectual property law and jurisprudence. His work as Chief Judge, his publications and his work teaching patent law globally to students, judges and government officials has left an indelible mark on the field of IP law and the protection of IP rights throughout the world.
This year, under Judge Rader’s leadership, we are organizing two IP programs in China and help featured speakers reach over 100 + Chinese industries representatives, in house corporate counsels and IP service professionals. From live panel debates to case studies, from networking opportunities to one-on one business meeting, the two programs in two cities will be one of the most valuable ways to connect with current and future clients, expand network and develop new partnerships. In addition, the two programs are invitation only with targeted industries and trade associations. Past attendees included in house counsels from top Chinese industries and to visionary startup companies.

Judge Rader joined electric vehicle charging station maker ChargePoint Inc. and filed the amicus brief with the high court in a case involving an invalidated garage door patent belonging to The Chamberlain Group Inc.
According to IP Law360, Judge Rader told the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday that the justices' 2014 ruling in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank should be used like a "scalpel, not a sledgehammer" when applied to the question of a patent's validity.
Judge Rader and ChargePoint urged the justices to take up The Chamberlain Group's case to help clear up lingering uncertainty around Section 101 of the Patent Act, which is used to invalidate patents covering abstract ideas.
"This narrow exception should be wielded like a scalpel, not a sledgehammer," Rader and ChargePoint argued. "Unfortunately, uncertainty is making it impossible for lower courts to narrowly construe the exception and resist attempts to wield it like a sledgehammer."
