INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY a company that claimed another company used its patented technology without a license was awarded $30 million by a federal jury on June 9. In 1984, Honeywell Inc. of Morristown, N.J., was issued U.S. Patent No. 4,425,501, covering imaging chips for use in autofocus cameras and other videorecording devices. After an extensive licensing campaign, US JVC Corp., Elmwood Park, N.J., was the sole major videocamera manufacturer not to have entered into an agreement with Honeywell. However, that didn’t stop JVC from using Honeywell’s technology. Honeywell sued US JVC Corp., and its parentcompany, Victor Co. of Japan Ltd., for infringing two claims of the 501 patent. The jury found infringement and used a a 2% royalty rate on sales of the infringing videocameras in calculating the award. Honeywell Inc. v. Victor Co. of Japan Ltd., No. 99-1607 (D. Minn.).
