Apple, RIM sued by Kodak over photo technology

Eastman Kodak has filed a lawsuit against Apple—as well as BlackBerry-maker RIM—which claims that the iPhone infringes on Kodak patents related to digital cameras. Specifically, Kodak claims that the iPhone and some BlackBerry models infringe on a patent covering technology for previewing photos. Kodak is asking the U.S. International Trade Commission to bar Apple and RIM from shipping infringing products, and is seeking unspecified damages in the suit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York. Apple was sued by a separate company over the camera technology in the iPhone in December of last year; both Kodak and Apple were named in a suit by BetaNet later the same month.
