Why is Waymo suing Uber?

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] Waymo is suing Uber over stolen trade secrets. They filed a, Complain about a year ago last February saying that a former Google employee stole 14000 chates grant files and that Uber then hired this employee to develop it's self driving car program. [MUSIC] Well we're in federal court and federal judges don't like things to go on too long, so right now on the calendar it's sighted for three weeks, there's some talk that it may go longer but right now we're looking at three weeks. [MUSIC] There are a lot of heavy hitting witnesses that might come forward. We have the former CEO of Uber Travis Kalanick, we have the CEO of Alphabet Larry Page. There is a whole bunch of employees from both Google and Uber along with the person who allegedly stole the self driving car files, Anthony Levandowski. Waymo wants Uber ideally to shut down its self-driving car program. They see Uber as a big competitor in the space. And this is a space that is growing and potentially could be worth a lot of money in a few years. [MUSIC] So the judge is putting the burden of proof on Waymo. It wants Waymo to proof that not only did Uber get these get these fourteen thousand files but they used them to develop their self driving car program. So it's a high burden of proof on Waymo. [BLANK_AUDIO] There's always a potential for settlement which can happen in cases like this and there's the two, if Waymo wins or if Uber wins. If Uber wins that means they get to continue developing their self-driving car program. As planned, if Waymo wins, there may be some limit on what Uber can do in it's self driving car program.
