Waymo Drops 3 Patent Claims

In an interesting move, reported by Bloomberg, Waymo has dropped three of its four patent – infringement claims in its lawsuit against Uber. The judge in the case has been encouraging Waymo to focus on theft of trade secrets and to drop the patent claims. In its explanation, Waymo now claims they are not using the technology covered in the three dropped claims.
