Trolls in the automotive business?
An article in the National Law Review suggests the following entities might be trolls working the automotive sector:
American Vehicular Sciences, who has sued OEMs on a number of patents allegedly covering “heads up displays” with elements of motion detection, voice recognition, and user interface features;
Innovative Display Technologies which has asserted a series of patents relating to “light emitting panel assemblies” asserted against LCD displays; and
Beacon Navigation bringing a series of suits in federal court and the International Trade Commission against numerous OEMs relating to automotive GPS navigation systems.
**Separately, the National Law Review also discusses trade secret issues in the Trans Pacific Partnership.
