    there's no particular technical aspect to the session so it would only be a design patent they are chasing them over

    Patents are incredibly complex, and simply stating: the first action camera was actually a similar design, simplifies it to a level that isn't fair on the defendant or plaintiff. Design patents are notoriously hard to enforce, however, when it a huge corporation vs a small manufacturer, even if the corporation may know it cannot legally enforce the patent or win in a court, the corporation may choose to 'scare' the small manufacturer to defend what it sees as its IP. Consequently, the small manufacturer may not simply have the time, resources, or ability to defend itself (let alone the huge stress) and as such, makes the choice to cease any work that infringe.

    I'd suspect that to be the case here, even if they don't have a case they do have deep pockets and will just litigate to death

    Gopro patent was filed before Polaroid camera hit the market.

    oh, that phase it's over ("miracle new camera which i need to buy/test.....")....I mean it started with DV minicam, then 808...now I am more or less settled on a "mobius" concept, not only buying/testing those company (such as Yi or viofo) which you can trust for firmware update & support.
