Apple can’t pursue patent infringement against Kodak for now


U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Allan Gropper, who oversees Kodak’s Chapter 11 case, told Apple at a Thursday hearing that the company can’t currently pursue ongoing patent infringement litigation against the bankrupt Eastman Kodak, reports “Reuters” (

The judge said it would be an “inappropriate way forward.” He also denied Apple’s request to file a new patent infringement lawsuit against Kodak over printer and digital camera patents, according to “Reuters.”

Apple sued Kodak in April 2010, about three months after Kodak accused Apple and Research In Motion of infringing a patent related to ways of previewing images. Apple’s countersuit said Kodak devices copy the technology that it uses in Macs, iPhone, iTunes and Photo Booth involving image processing, energy management and memory design.
