Kodak Gets Another Shot at Apple and RIM in Patent Fight
The U.S. International Trade Commission today said that it will review a January judgement passed by ITC Administrative Law Judge Paul Luckern regarding Kodak's patent dispute with Apple and Research In Motion. Kodak sued Apple and RIM in January 2010, claiming they were infringing on its patents concerning how images are previewed on a digital device. In January, Luckern ruled that Apple and RIM did not infringe on the patents in question. Kodak appealed, and today's ruling is a result of that appeal. The ITC says it will review Luckern's decision and offer a final opinion later this year. Kodak is seeking a $1 billion payout from the two companies to help relieve its own financial troubles.
Another Once Great Company.
