Brand & New, a podcast of the International Trademark Association (INTA), will present a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the professional and personal life of the late United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a two-part series airing on March 30 and April 13. The episodes feature three distinguished women who knew Justice Ginsburg extremely well, including Jane Ginsburg, a renowned authority on intellectual property (IP) law and the daughter of Justice Ginsburg.
The series, entitled “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Her Legacy in the IP World,” features Jane Ginsburg, Professor of Literary and Artistic Property Law at Columbia Law School in New York, New York, and a staunch supporter of authors’ rights; Mary Hartnett, an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, D.C., and co-author with Justice Ginsburg and Professor Wendy Williams of the bestselling book, My Own Words; and Judge Margaret McKeown of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, San Francisco, California, who has lectured throughout the world on IP and other issues, and was Justice Ginsburg’s friend and mentee.
In a wide-ranging and candid discussion, the guests shed light on the many ways Justice Ginsburg shaped U.S. IP law through her opinions, including her approach to writing a dissent “as if it were the majority opinion,” said Professor Ginsburg. They also share anecdotes about the Justice’s personal life—from her friendships to her cooking to her unexpected fondness of the nickname the “Notorious RBG.”
“We are so pleased to bring together three IP trailblazers to pay tribute to an icon, Justice Ginsburg. Our guests offer a rare glimpse into her life, engaging in a lively and insightful conversation that highlights the Justice’s contributions to the legal world and society,” said Brand & New Host Audrey Dauvet, an IP lawyer and entrepreneur.
Now in its third season, Brand & New continues engaging in conversations with an international roster of influential experts and visionaries on need-to-know topics about the trademark world and beyond. Brand & New draws as many as 1,800 listeners per episode and ranks in the top 30 percent of most-listened-to podcasts.
