Apple wants to sue Kodak, doesn’t care if its bankrupt


We’ve been used to Apple suing everyone else, but when we heard that the company was asking permission from bankruptcy judge to sue the beleaguered imaging company, we just had to stop and say “whaaaaaaat” altogether. Apparently Apple wants to sue Kodak in two fronts: one with a patent infringement lawsuit in a Manhattan district court and another in the International Trade Commission. The subject of the suit according to the report in Bloomberg, covers technologies used in printers, digital cameras and digital picture frames.

If Apple’s suit goes through and Kodak is forced to stop making the supposedly infringing products, then that would be end of the imaging company, as the subject of the suit is the same core technologies that Kodak elected to hold on after being forced to shutter its camera business.
