Director Daniel E. Yonan was noted in the article "Four Patent Trends Shaping the US Automotive Sector," published by Managing IP. His comments address NPE litigation and SEP litigation in the automotive technology space.
From the article:
"There are four big intellectual property trends in the automotive sector now, according to counsel at Toyota, another car business and three law firms.
Car companies are patenting more and protecting different technologies, which can be challenging because of the amount of competition in these spaces.
There’s also the potential for a rise in non-practising entity (NPE) litigation as automotive firms invest more in software."
