Apple seeks to sue bankrupt Kodak for patent infringement

Joel Rosenblatt for Bloomberg Business:

Apple Inc. asked a bankruptcy judge for permission to sue Eastman Kodak Co. over allegations it’s infringing patents that Apple says cover technologies used in printers, digital cameras and digital picture frames.

Kodak is looking to sell that part of its business, according to a statement Kodak issued last week. It’s likely that Apple’s looking to square that issue away before Kodak (and its creditors) make any money from the sale of its consumer products.
