Unfortunately I'm sure the patent office doesn't scan this forum looking for prior art, so someone might still get granted a patent. Once granted it becomes up to you to prove it invalid, which is expensive even if you're in the right.

As far as I know. Once granted, the validity of the patent is only tested if the patentee tries yo use the patent.

Then, whatever Joseph says regarding he told the world, shaking the sensor to make an AA filter is quite obvious. And many others, me included, have proposed it several times.

So, the patent may get granted. But that only shows how sick patents are.
