Patent fight in California wine country

The Napa Valley Register discusses a patent infringement suit brought by Paul Skinner against Gallo.

Within the article, one finds text along the lines of "stealing credit" for the invention:

The complaint also alleges that Gallo went on to publish “papers and articles” about the technology. Gallo has a few papers and presentations concerning VRDI available on the internet, including a presentation given by one of its research scientists in 2017 at the California Plant and Soil Conference and a conference paper partially authored by two of its employees the same year. Skinner alleges the wine distributor as “taking credit for and championing” the benefits of his inventions.
