Apple, others hit with imaging patent lawsuit

Apple is among a group of companies sued by Imperium Holdings, which claims the companies infringe on five distinct patents dealing with image sensors. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Texas, claims that Apple, Kyocera, LG, Motorola Mobility, Nokia, RIM, and Sony Ericsson violate patents covering “Image Flicker Reduction with Fluorescent Lighting,” a “High Sensitivity Snap Shot CMOS Image Sensor,” a “CMOS Image Sensor Arrangement with Reduced Pixel Light Shadowing,” “Bad Pixel Correction While Preserving Features,” and a “Semiconductor Device for Isolating a Photodiode to Reduce Junction Leakage.” According to the complaint, Apple infringes on the patents with the iPhone and other devices with image sensors, possibly including the iPod touch, iPad, and Mac computers.
