Sony Sues RED for Patent Infringement

In a turnabout for the saga we call "REDlaw", Sony has filed a Patent Suit against Red Digital Cinema.  The following is from the Sony website: http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/show-highend/
"On April 5, 2013, Sony Corporation ("Sony") sued Red Digital Cinema ("Red") for infringing 7 of Sony's patents in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. Sony believes that the Red ONE, EPIC and SCARLET cameras, various digital still and motion camera modules, and various accessories such as the REDMOTE infringe our patents. Sony is seeking both money damages and an injunction to stop the continued sale of Red's infringing products. Sony makes significant investments into the research & development of technology related to the cinema camera industry and intends to protect those investments against companies that infringe our patents."
