Apple's lawyers have plenty to look to the saganlæg in all ends. Within the large litigation from Nokia, but now there also saw one from Kodak. Apple sued along with Research In Motion to break a series of Kodak's patents related to camera and image handling in the iPhone and RIM's BlackBerry devices. One of the problems of Kodak is apparently related to the way images can be presented at a number of solutions on the iPhone and Blackberry.
Laura Quatela is Chief IP officer at Kodak says that the company has for years been trying to reach an agreement with Apple and RIM, but without success. A number of other mobile manufacturers already pay a license to Kodak for the use of their patents, including LG, Motorola, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.
Kodak argues that plaintiff reluctantly other companies and does so only when there is an imperative, as it is in this case.
In addition to producing a lawsuit against Apple and RIM are sent a complaint to the U.S. International Trade Commission, which if accepted would appeal to Apple and RIM will no longer have to import iPhones and BlackBerry devices.
