So many patent battles in the news these days, when will it ever end?

The companies involved include Apple, Kodak, Casio, Dell, Fuji, Sanyo and Sony.

"The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the district of Delaware, charges that the defendants used patented Honeywell technology for brightening images and reducing interference on LCDs on a variety of consumer electronics products including notebook computers and cell phones, Honeywell said."
