With multi-level integration of hardware, software, and systems for driver assistance (ADAS)/fully autonomous vehicles, V2V/V2I connectivity, and other vehicle technology developments, the mix of traditional automakers and pure technology companies alike are changing the landscape of the automotive industry. These emerging technologies and changes in the auto landscape bring to the forefront novel and intricate IP issues, ranging from disruption of supplier and competitor sets, IP ownership, IP protection, and the obligation to defend and indemnify.
Please join Foley’s experienced Intellectual Property partners for an in-depth discussion addressing IP issues surrounding auto emerging technologies. We also invite you to join us for lunch after the discussion to further explore the issues in a more relaxed setting.
