It would be very interisting to what patent they refer.In 1995 Ben Griffin published a smart little tool called «Profile Editor».
It was for OS9.With the app you are able to extract the LUT of ICC profiles as raw pixel bitmap. This was made for editing in Photoshop or other apps and put it back to the ICC profile.
So this is very old technology.Lets see what patent they are reffering to and at what time it was published ;-)

How should I know? That was one unhappy conversation. I saw no point to it - after all patents are a form of disclosure so it seemed to me that anything that has been patented has already -ab definitio- been disclosed. At least now, some of this stuff is out there. I guess I'm not fit to become a lawyer, I don't understand all these IP issues.

I had scripts todo this sort of thing for editing profiles, but the Kodak people warned me against publishing my methods as they considered that publication was an encouragement to break the patents on their own profile editor. So it is with great relish that I see all of this going into the public domain :) Edmund
