Super Bowl Aerial Camera Flies Over Patent Hurdle: As you probably noticed if you watched the game, CBS used its aerial camera system during the Super Bowl on Sunday. What you may not have known is that it took a decision by a Philadelphia federal district court judge to allow that to happen. In CF InFlight Ltd. v. Cablecam Systems Ltd., Judge Legrome D. Davis concluded that the plaintiff, which holds the patent for the "Skycam" aerial camera system, failed to show that it is likely to win a patent infringement claim against the makers of the "Multi-V" camera suspension system.

If anyone comes across the opinion from the case, please let me know.
