Apple has filed a lawsuit against Kodak in California Northern District Court claiming patent infringement. In conjunction with the lawsuit, Apple has also filed a complaint against Kodak with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). According to the ITC Law Blog, the technologies in the Apple patents Kodak is allegedly infringing “relate generally to advancements and innovations in the fields of image processing, power management, and memory architectures in portable digital devices.” Apple is claiming a number of Kodak products infringe on its patents, including the Kodak Z series, M series, and C series of cameras, as well as the company’s Zi6, Zi8, Zxl, and Zx3 video cameras. Kodak filed a lawsuit and ITC complaint against both Apple and BlackBerry-maker RIM in January, claiming that the iPhone and some BlackBerry models infringe on a patent covering technology for previewing photos; the ITC later said it would consider Kodak’s claim against the two companies, but has yet to announce a decision.
