Red sues Sony over patents, wants disputed F-series cameras 'destroyed' reports that Sony was going “Red hunting” with it’s new F-series pro camcorders, but it looks like Red has flipped that scenario. It’s suing Sony for allegedly violating two of its patents — asking for an injunction to stop sales plus an award for damages, and even that that the F5, F55 and F65 models in question be “delivered up and destroyed.” The Hobbit camera-maker claims the video cams have “resulted in lost sales, reduced the business and profit of Red, and greatly injured the general reputation of Red.” The patents involve Red’s implementation of RAW video, but no details were given as to how it thinks those processes were infringed. Anyway, you can now add high-end video cameras to the growing playbill of patent follies.
