Apple has been slapped with a $1.1 billion lawsuit from a small US medical image company, Imatec, alleging the infringement of three patents. The complaint, which Imatec filed in the US District Court in the Southern District of New York, alleges that Apple's Color Sync colour management technology violates its patents. New York-based Imatec wants a preliminary and permanent injunction against Apple using the technology concerned, plus a jury trial. Imatec's patents cover methods and systems for video image reproduction in hard copy. Apple has disputed Imatec's claims and is intending to defend the lawsuit vigorously, according to a representative of the manufacturer.
