Apparently Kodak has been arguing with Jobs’ Mob and RIM for ages and so far a briefcase of bank notes has not been forthcoming.
Kodak has also filed two lawsuits against Apple in U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York on the basis if it can make it there, it can make it anywhere.
The first case claims that two patents related to image preview and the ability to process images of different resolutions did not spring fully formed from the mind of Steve Jobs as Apple fanboys claim. The second suit is about a process by which one computer program can call on another to carry out certain functions.
It is strange that Apple did not heed the warnings and strike a deal and carry on. Kodak has already won a case against Sun Microsystems in 2002 over the same technology. It has also recently struck deals with Samsung and LG under which the Korean giants will pay Kodak royalties.
