The article reports that Toyota Motor Corp. has been charged by innovative transmissions company Antonov of trying to force it to incur substantial costs by opening a new court case in Japan over alleged patent infringements. Both the companies are involved in a patent dispute over the same technology in a German court. It seems that Toyota is not confident of winning the German court case. CEO John Moore of Antonov believes that Toyota has both infringed their patents as well as licensing this technology to other manufacturers.
