The Kodak actions specifically allege that Samsung and LG camera phones infringe Kodak digital camera patents. The patents in question cover technology related to image capture, compression and data storage and a method for previewing motion images.
Kodak filed against Samsung and LG in the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, as well as in the U.S. International Trade Commission.
Kodak's District Court complaints request compensation for damages resulting from the companies' infringement, and both the District Court and ITC actions seek injunctions prohibiting Samsung and LG
from further importation and sale of products cited in the complaints. Kodak did not disclose the amount of damages it is pursuing. --Nina Lentini
