Consumer electronics expert witnesses may be experienced in various areas, such as mechanical engineering, communications equipment, multimedia, computers and computer hardware, software, global electronics, biomechanics, digital signal processing, telecommunications, computer engineering, electronic design, and other technological studies. In many cases of product defects in consumer electronics, the technology may have failed in some manner, whether it is an error in mechanical design, automated control system, the manufacturing process, ergonomics, displays and controls, or other aspect of the device in question.
Consumer electronics may become the subject of a lawsuit. Issues with patents, copyright, product defects, marketing campaigns, and other related issues often require the professional evaluation of a consumer electronics expert witness. In addition to the more typical litigation over consumer products, consumer electronics may have additional issues with the technological aspects in terms of design and functionality.
The advertising campaign behind any product, including consumer electronics, must adhere to certain rules and regulations to avoid deceptive advertising. Consumer electronics expert witnesses may also provide an expert opinion on whether the electronic product failed to function as advertised, which would be an issue with marketing, as well as product liability. The consumer electronics business must also take precautions to avoid bringing about lawsuits based in patent law and copyright infringement, as the product design and functionality must not violate ownership rights, contracts, and other copyright laws.
