China's IP Theft is Affecting its Plans in the U.S. Market
An interesting item in today's China Real Time Report from the Wall Street Journal: the city of Los Angeles is trying to persuade Chinese battery and auto maker BYD Co. to open its first U.S. headquarters in L.A. As part of that effort, Los Angelese agreed to stock part of its municipal vehicle fleet with BYD’s all-electric battery car, which contains a relatively new lithium-ion battery.
The planned launch of BYD’s all-electric e6 sedan is now being tied up with questions of intellectual property infringement regardnig their lithium batteries.
