Kodak Sues Samsung, LG Over Camera Phones

Kodak Logo

Eastman Kodak Company is suing Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics over what it calls infringement of Kodak patents relating to digital camera phones. The patents in question cover technology related to image capture, compression and data storage and a method for previewing motion images.

Kodak has licensed its imaging patents to several leading technology companies including: MEI/Panasonic, Motorola, Nokia, Olympus, Sanyo, Sharp, Sony, Sony Ericsson and others.

Kodak filed the suits against Samsung and LG in the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, as well as in the U.S. International Trade Commission. Kodak’s District Court complaints request compensation for damages resulting from the companies’ infringement, and both the District Court and ITC actions seek injunctions prohibiting Samsung and LG from further importation and sale of products cited in the complaints. Kodak did not disclose the amount of damages it is pursuing.

Samsung and LG have yet to respond to the infringement complaints.
