AutoTech & Mobility in Europe

The mobility and autotech sectors are undergoing revolutionary change. Technological innovation, policy pressures and a shifting cultural attitude to the concept of individual mobility are fueling a profound transformation of the markets in vehicles and mobility services. This rapid change is happening in a regulatory environment that is much slower to adapt. This edition of PlugIn looks at some of the legal issues raised by the disruption of the sector. It addresses the challenges the sector faces and examines the many new alliances and co-operations formed to address them. It looks at the modernization of the regulatory framework in order to facilitate new mobility services and explains why patent litigation in the sector is likely to increase. It identifies the key drivers for automotive technology transactions and discusses the challenge posed by data protection regulations in a connected car landscape. Finally, it examines how competition in mobility markets is perceived from an antitrust point of view.
