ITC Sides with Everyone in RIM, Apple, Kodak Spat
The U.S. International Trade Commission today delivered a ruling on the on-going lawsuit between Eastman Kodak and RIM and Apple. Kodak sued Apple and RIM in early 2010, alleging that Apple and RIM's smartphones violated Kodak's camera patents. In late 2010, a judge initially sided with Apple and RIM, saying that the firms hadn't infringed on the patents. Kodak appealed, and the ITC decided the case was worth reviewing. Today's decision covered three separate claims. The ITC decided that Apple and RIM did not infringe on the main patent claim being made by Kodak. However, the ITC decided to restructure the other two claims, siding with Kodak on one, and not coming to a determination on the third. It is sending the entire case back to lower courts so that the points may be argued by Kodak, Apple, and RIM again.
