Finmeccanica vs. GM: the patents on future cars

Posted on 28/08/2007 · Posted in patents, technology

Legal battle in United States: Finmeccanica instigated an action against General Motors before the District Court of Virginia.

The case regards a patent filed by General Motors allegedly in infringement of a patent filed by AnsaldoLucchi Elettromeccanica and Tor Vergata University.  The latter covers an electrical engine which can be used for hybrid vehicles. Behind the legal battle of this case, we imagine what kind of cars we will be driving tomorrow.
