Kodak, makers of the world’s first digital camera, has filed lawsuits against Apple and RIM, alleging that the iPhones and camera enabled Blackberrys are using Kodak’s technology without license, with regards to their patent for previewing images.
On December 17th, an International Trade Commission (ITC) judge declared that Kodak’s patent for color image preview was enforceable, and that Samsung had infringed on Kodak. Obviously the camera maker has taken this victory to heart, and is endeavoring for the same result against Apple and RIM. However, Kodak has mentioned that they are amenable to a settlement, so may just be looking for a payout for using their technology.
