Apple Loses Digital Imaging Patent Case

X

Apple has lost a patent suit against Eastman Kodak with the US International Trade Commission ruling that Kodak’s digital-imaging technology does not infringe on Apple patents.Apple had filed its complaint last year, after itself being sued by Kodak for allegedly infringing patents related to previewing images. Kodak was seeking royalties from both Apple and BlackBerry maker RIM.

The commission ruled that the two patents in question weren’t being infringed upon and one was invalid. The full six-member commission still needs to formally accept or reject the decision. A final decision is expected in late June.

“We’re pleased by this ruling and we are looking forward to the full ITC Commission’s decision in our case against Apple and RIM, which is expected in late June,” said Kodak spokesman David Lanzillo.

Apple wasn’t immediately available for comment.
