Fintech are filing more patents, although this could be due to an increasing number of companies entering the market.
Yet, an additional resort of such entities is a Trade Secret, since the Alice v CLS Bank poses additional requirements on abstract ideas in order to be patentable inventions.
Waymo (read Google) states that the proprietary information is clear within Uber’s project.
Uber admitted that when Lewandowsky started its new role at Uber, he had 5 disks of information from Google.
Uber admitted its CEO knew about Lewandowsky bringing proprietary information to Uber, but still denies responsibility and alleges that Uber asked the engineer to desist from bringing such proprietary information.

Remember the famous lawsuit Google v. Uber? Uber has acquired Otto, a company founded by a former top engineer of Google (actually of Waymo, it’s department working on self-driving cars).
Google accused Uber of theft of proprietary information and breach of trade secrets. The judge himself stated that the amount of evidence colllected by Google was impressive. And it actually was! The court ruled firstly that Uber could not transfer the litigation to a private arbitration (keeping it secret, ay!) and finally that the engineer cannot work for Uber.
