- Waymo puts Uber lawyers in hot seat over trade-secret theft
By Joel Rosenblatt - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
Waymo claims Uber Technologies Inc. had an accomplice in the theft of invaluable driverless technology trade secrets — the ride-hailing giant’s own lawyers.Waymo is aiming to use those details to buttress its claims Uber colluded with Levandowski to steal prized technology in the heated race to commercialize autonomous vehicles.Uber contends Waymo is mischaracterizing the actions of its outside lawyers, who it says did the right thing by hiring cyberforensics firm Stroz Friedberg to quarantine any sensitive information Levandowski had from Waymo or Google — and wall it off from Uber — during the due-diligence vetting of the Ottomotto acquisition.“MoFo and Stroz were retained for the very purpose of preventing any violation of intellectual property rights in connection with Uber’s acquisition of Ottomotto, and were contractually bound not to (and did not) disclose to Uber any confidential or proprietary Waymo information,” Uber argued in a court filing.In recent weeks, lawyers at another firm representing Uber — Boies, Schiller & Flexner — have taken on a more prominent role drafting court filings and representing the company in hearings.Waymo has also accused Stroz and Morrison of violating court orders to turn over proprietary information, including files from the law firm’s representation of Levandowski in arbitration proceedings brought by Google last year.Haag held her post as Northern California’s top prosecutor from 2010 to 2015 under President Barack Obama, leading one of the largest regional outposts of the Justice Department and one of the most active in white-collar prosecutions.
- Google aims to personalize mobile search
By Wendy Lee - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
Google wants to make its search experience on smartphones more personalized — by showing information based on users’ interests and what’s trending in their area. The information will appear beneath the search bar on the Google app on Apple and Android devices (eventually, it will be included in Google mobile searches, not just the app). The company will pull information based on what the user searches across Gmail, Search, YouTube and other Google properties. Google rolled out an early version of this feature, called feed, in December, but it is sending an update Wednesday with improvements to U.S. users. Some observers drew similarities to Facebook’s News Feed, which allows users to scroll down their home page to see the news articles and photos their friends are posting. Randy Giusto, a lead analyst at advisory firm Outsell Inc., said that as consumer behavior evolves, companies like Google that make money through advertising must also change the way they reach consumers. John Simpson with privacy advocacy group Consumer Watchdog, said he will probably not be using the feed feature because he is reluctant to share his personal information with an online service provider. Abhishek Dubey, an assistant professor of computer science at Vanderbilt University, said Google’s move is part of a larger effort by tech companies to build personal assistants for consumers to rely on.
