Nikon succeeds in gaining injunction against Polaroid iM1836

Design patents for Nikon 1 range infringed by Polaroid release

A United States District Court has sided with Nikon in a design patent dispute over a Polaroid camera. The Polaroid iM1836 by Sakar is now the subject of an injunction where the company cannot manufacture or sell the mirrorless camera, one which bears a considerable resemblance to the J1 in the Nikon 1 range of mirrorless snappers.



After Nikon filed the lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 11th, the court issued a preliminary injunction less than two months later. Under the terms of the injunction, Sakar has already removed the product page for the Polaroid iM1836 from its website, notes The Verge, and since the agreement states that Sakar will "no longer manufacture, import, advertise, promote, offer for sale, sell, or ship" the camera "in its present configuration," it appears that Sakar will have to perform drastic external design changes to it before attempting to sell it again.

The Android-based Polaroid iM1836 interchangeable lens camera had an 18.1-megapixel sensor, a 3.5-inch display on the rear, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a pop-up flash.
