Automotive patent war, who is dangerous?





Automotive patent lawsuits are mostly filed by patent trolls (NPE). Those NPEs which actively brought lawsuits against automakers in the past 3 years have a high dispute risk.

For this study, We identified dispute risks based on the number of times that automakers cited NPE patents. We also diagnosed future dispute risks with a focus on NPEs that have been cited frequently by automakers in the past three years though they have not filed any lawsuit yet.
