The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has issued a mixed verdict in Kodak’s patent dispute with Apple and RIM. The AP reports that the agency essentially agreed with one of its judges who threw out Kodak’s claims, but did find limited patent infringement, and sent some matters back to the judge for further review. The commission revised its definitions for “motion processor” and “still processor”, asking the judge to decide whether Kodak’s patent was infringed under the new definitions, and also found that Apple and RIM had infringed on a patent related to “initiating capture of a still image while previewing a motion image.” It did not rule on any penalties; a revised decision is expected no earlier than August 30.
