The U.S. International Trade Commission has sided with Apple and Research In Motion in an initial ruling over a complaint by Kodak. Imaging giant Eastman Kodak filed the complain last year, alleging that Apple and RIM were violating Kodak's patents that pertain to previewing digital images on mobile devices. The judge overseeing the complaint said that the companies aren't infringing on Kodak's patent, which weakens Kodak's case against the two companies significantly. Kodak's chief intellectual property officer, Laura Quatela, said in a statement, "We fully expect the ITC commission will ultimately rule that the patent claim at issue is valid and infringed by Apple and RIM." Kodak has won similar complaints in the past, allowing it to collect nearly $1 billion in royalty payment from Samsung and LG.
