Nikon is denying RED’s accusations and will be fighting the


Back in May I reported that RED is suing Nikon for infringing on its video compression patents.

The latest update is that Nikon is denying RED’s accusations and will be fighting the lawsuit:

“Basically, there were three possible solutions: Nikon pays royalties to use the ability for shooting compressed raw internally, removing this capability, or fighting back. According to Nikon’s answer, it chooses the last option. In the document titled “Nikon Corporation and Nikon Inc’s Answer to RED.COM, Llc’s Complaint For Patent Infringement”, the word “Denies” shows more than 70 times. As stated: “Nikon denies each and every allegation of the Complaint”. Moreover, it seems that Nikon wants to fight back. Below you can find some quotes from the document, including the whole document.” (Ymcinema)

Here is a quote from the document Nikon Corporation and Nikon Inc’s Answer to RED.COM, Llc’s Complaint For Patent Infringement:

“RED is not entitled to injunctive relief because it has, at a minimum, no irreparable injury and an adequate remedy at law for Nikon’s alleged infringement of the Patents-in-Suit. RED will be unable to establish that (1) it has suffered any injury, let alone an irreparable injury; (2) remedies available at law, such as monetary damages, would be inadequate to compensate for any injury; (3) considering the balance of hardships between RED and Nikon, a remedy in equity is warranted; and (4) the public interest would be served by an injunction.

WHEREFORE, Nikon prays that the Court enter judgment in its favor and against RED as follows: That RED takes nothing and is denied any relief whatsoever; That RED’s claims against Nikon be dismissed in their entirety and with prejudice; That Nikon be awarded the costs incurred in connection with this action;”
