Digital camera image processing example
The case of digital cameras is interesting because we have to be careful to differentiate it from the case of anti-lock braking systems (ABS).
With ABS, we argue that it's not a software patent because an expert driver could apply the idea without the help from a computer.
Is it sometimes or always possible for an expert camera user to achieve the picture quality improvements currently being realised by improvements in camera software? This case needs to be developed further.
