Apple has a new problem with it's iPhone: the built-in camera might be infringing on some digital camera patents.

St. Clair Intellectual Property Consultants is suing Apple, contending that the Cupertino-based companies is stepping on some toes with some of the 3-megapixel camera's features concerning the lens and memory. The four St. Clair-held patents in question are ‘459, ‘219, ‘010 and ‘899.

Apparently, St. Clair is pretty good when it comes to lawsuits, as Canon and Sony paid $35 million and $25 million to them, respectively. Wonder if Apple will put up a fight or just pay them off.
