Claims seven patents infringed by Red in cameras

Sony is fighting against high-end camera manufacturer Red's patent infringement lawsuit with one of its own. The new filing, claiming that Red has infringed seven of Sony's patents, has been filed in a Central District court in California, and seeks a number of sales injunctions as well as financial compensation.

A notice on Sony's professional video camera site, found by The Verge, states that Sony believes the Red One, Epic, and Scarlet Cameras, "various digital still and motion camera modules, and various accessories such as the Redmote" infringes their patents, but does not mention which patents are being infringed. Red's own lawsuit, filed in February, claims Sony infringes on two Red patents with three cameras, with Red seeking not only a sales injunction and compensation, but also the destruction of the F65, F5, and F55 cameras.

Shortly after the Sony comment, Red CEO Jim Jannard wrote on the Red forums "Seems like someone is nervous... it just ain't me," later revealing that Red pays "many companies royalties to use patented technology."
