We meet fascinating inventors, innovators, politicians and leaders — who share the view that what’s best for America is to protect patents and keep innovation in America. Hosted by Jenny Beth Martin.
Randy Landreneau: The Inventor
51:15Randy Landreneau is an inventor, an entrepreneur, and now an activist fighting to restore the rights of inventors. As the President of US Inventor, a non-profit organization, Randy represents inventors, writers, and entrepreneurs around the country to advocate for the US Congress to pass laws that will strengthen the US patent system. The main problem stems from The America Invents Act of 2011 that upended some of the revolutionary framework that made the US patent system an engine that sparked exponential growth in American innovation and ultimately propelled America to the leader of the free world. Randy’s battle may seem irrelevant to much of the population, but after hearing this episode you will realize how this battle impacts all Americans.You can find out more about US Inventor by visiting www.usinventor.org.For more information on how to watch Innovation Race, visit www.innovationracemovie.com
