A district court in Tokyo, Japan, has ruled in Nikon's favour in a patent infringement lawsuit filed in 2011 against Sigma. Nikon claimed that a number of Sigma lenses infringed on some of its patents related to lens-based vibration reduction technology (VR). The court has ordered Sigma to pay 1.5 billion yen (14.5 million dollars) in compensation.
