Randall Rader, former Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals and member of the IP Hall of Fame, signed a strategic cooperative agreement with LeEco in his recent visit to LeEco’s headquarter in Beijing. This signifies that LeEco has gained support from one of the biggest names of US IP industry, which will be a great boost for the patent globalization of LeEco after its rise into the world’s top tech companies earlier this year due to its surge of patent numbers 14 times higher than that of last year. Analysts said that: with the support of the nation’s top brains for LeEco’s patent applications and protection as well as possible patent wars in North America, this collaboration will secure LeEco’s march into the North America market in the fourth quarter.
