Digimedia Tech LLC has quite recently filed a Patent Infringement lawsuit against Nikon Americas Inc. and Nikon Inc. by alleging that they have appropriated three of the company’s patents concerning digital camera technology. The patent infringement lawsuit is filed in the Eastern District of New York before Nicholas G. Garaufis (judge). Digimedia Tech is represented by Kent & Risley (a specialty litigation firm dealing with Intellectual Property (IP) and complicated civil cases).
The patents specified in the lawsuit filed are as follows:
- US Patent No. 6,914,635 (the ‘635 patent), titled – Microminiature Zoom System for Digital Camera
- US Patent Nos. 6,545,706 (the ‘706 patent) and 7,715,476 (the ‘476 patent), both titled – System, Method, and Article of Manufacture for Tracking a Head of a Camera-Generated Image of a Person
As per the patent infringement lawsuit filed, the claims of the US Patent No. 6,914,635 (the ‘635 patent) are directed towards the technical solutions for the technical problem corresponding to providing autofocus, zoom, and several other features in the exceedingly compact digital cameras. Another feature claimed by the said patent is image stabilization. The claims of the US Patent Nos. 6,545,706 (the ‘706 patent) and 7,715,476 (the ‘476 patent) are directed towards the technical solutions for the technical problem corresponding to identifying a head in an image.
According to Digimedia Tech, Nikon’s Coolpix P900RM and A1000 digital cameras have infringed upon the patents mentioned above. Among multiple other things and aspects, the A1000 camera has allegedly appropriated the US Patent No. 6,914,635 (the ‘635 patent) by making use of a similar Micro-Electromechanical System (MEMS) support mechanism for offering minimum two positions of movement to a supporting element. Nikon’s Coolpix P900RM has allegedly infringed upon the US Patent Nos. 6,545,706 (the ‘706 patent) and 7,715,476 (the ‘476 patent) as it features a system to process the images for identifying a head portion of a subject in them and a computer program for tracking the head portion of a person in video images.
As a consequence of Nikon’s alleged patent infringement, Digimedia Tech is now looking forward to seeking an award for damages, which according to the company, cannot be less than a reasonable royalty. For more visit: https://www.trademarkmaldives.com
