How a Self Driving Car Can Land You in Jail

One of the most prominent trade secret cases in recent years has come to a close as Anthony Levandowski was sentenced to 18 months in prison but his incarceration will be delayed until after the COVID-19 pandemic is over and then he will serve his full sentence.

Levandowski had been a key engineer at Google’s (GOOGGOOGL) Waymo before starting his own self-driving truck company called Otto and marketing his product.
