On behalf of 28 former government officials, professors, & public interest advocates, Alex Moss and Prof. Michael Carrier urged the DOJ Antitrust Division to reconsider a business letter supporting the Avanci patent pool that targets the automotive industry.
We explain that the letter 1) undermines bipartisan consensus, (2) relies on questionable positions, (3) expresses concerns that real-world events (like suits by patent trolls) have corroborated, (4) compounds supply-chain problems, and (5) threatens more foreboding future harms as 5G is more fully deployed.
