NGE IP Focus: Manufacturing

Neal Gerber Eisenberg and Wolters Kluwer have teamed up to bring you NGE IP Focus, a quarterly newsletter dedicated to intellectual property-related legal decisions.

In this issue, we focus on the manufacturing industry, highlighting some recent legal decisions that illustrate the depth and breadth of legal issues encountered in the field. As these cases will show, automation creates constant change in the consumer-driven society, and as a result IP law issues are being created at an equal pace. In addition, there have been vigorous challenges to patent infringement allegations in the automation space.

  • Electric vehicle operating system claims not patent-eligible
