DigiMedia Tech has filed a lawsuit in the Southern District of New York against Elite Brands Inc. (Elite) for patent infringement.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendant uses three of its patents relating to digital camera technology including the Bell+Howell B35HDz model without permission or license.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff reportedly said that DigiMedia is the owner of the patents entitled, “Microminiature Zoom System for Digital Camera,” (the ’635 patent), “System, Method, and Article of Manufacture for Tracking a Head of a Camera-Generated Image of a Person” (the ’476 patent), and a third entitled the same as the ‘476 patent (the ’706 patent).
The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant is using three of the patent including the ’635 patent as technical solutions to the technical problem of providing zoom, autofocus, and other features to increasingly compact digital cameras.
The plaintiff claimed that it’s patent ’476 and ’706 are directed to technical solutions to the technical problem of how to identify a head in an image.
The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendant is making, using, selling, offering for sale, and/ or importing products that incorporate one or more of the inventions without the DigiMedia Tech license.
DigiMedia seeks a jury trial and declaratory relief, damages, and an award of its attorneys’ fees and costs.
The case is ongoing.
