The patent infringement lawsuit GE filed against Siemens Gamesa on Friday is in several senses about gaining control. Quite literally, the patent litigation brought before the US's International Trade Commission (ITC) claims that the German-Spanish competitor illegitimately utilizes a proprietary wind turbine control system technology. In an extended sense, the case is about securing more control with the US market – both now and in the future, says founder and Chief Executive Philip Totaro from analyst firm Intelstor.
"GE has basically been methodically trying to eliminate competition from the US market, in part by using their IP rights to try and exclude competitors, or make competitor products more expensive – to make the gap to their own products seem less large in the eyes of a customer," he tells EnergyWatch.
