Toyota Patent Infringement re:Hybrid Synergy Drive

Toyota Patent Infringement re:Hybrid Synergy Drive

Toyota. A $4.3 million verdict originally rendered against Toyota in 2005 for infringing patents in order to bring its Hybrid Synergy Drive system to market has now been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. The original ruling came from a federal trial jury in Texas, which found that Toyota had used a microprocessor design that accepts torque information from both an external electric motor and internal combustion engine patented by Paice LLC, a McLean, Va., company, for its Prius. Toyota may have to pay Paice royalties for any future hybrid vehicles produced. It's ironic that Toyota had to crib a U.S. company's technical expertise to become America's Jolly Green Car Company, isn't it?

Wow! That so-called great Japanese ingenuity; seems to be American ingenuity after all!

Hell no! We won't see or hear anything that says negative things about any Japanese automaker! As I say the libs and the lib media have big money in pushing Japanese vehicles for their hybrids and other fuel cars. This is their ploy to push fossil fuels out. What they dont see is that Hybrids arent always a good thing. You get worse fuel mileage with ethanol, and it also has been reported that it could be as bad for the environment as oil. One other thing about ethanol is if its pushed to be the fuel of choice globally; there will not be any way the farmers can keep up with demand. There isnt enough land to grow all the corn and other plant life used to make ethanol.
