I don't know who owns this particular patent from iPIX:
Sony (larvatus prodiens, i e anymously ) baught 28 patents  in 2007
Minds-Eyes-View won the auction for the remaining (trademark, softwares

But this doesn't solve the more global problem of rpms with patent
problems (how to have them clearly  built and identified : need
different suffixes ?)
