Kodak Sues Apple and RIM Over Camera Patents
Today Eastman Kodak filed complaints with the International Trade Commission over patents it says Apple and RIM are misusing. The patent in particular applies to how a captured image is previewed on an imaging device. Kodak says attempts to resolve the patent squabble amicably have failed, directly resulting in today's court actions. Laura G. Quatela, Chief Intellectual Property Officer, and Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company, said, "There’s a basic issue of fairness that needs to be addressed. Those devices use Kodak technology, and we are merely seeking compensation for the use of our technology in their products." Kodak is seeking to prevent Apple and RIM from importing devices that it believes infringe on the patents in question. Kodak has also filed two additional suits against Apple over different patents regarding how imaging devices capture, preview and process pictures. On January 11, Kodak resolved a similar patent dispute with Samung, which agreed to license Kodak's technology.
