Kodak filing lawsuits against Apple and HTC

Kodak Logo

Kodak will be filing lawsuits against both Apple and HTC related to possible infringements on some of their digital imaging patents.

The claims from Kodak are that both smartphone manufacturers are infringing upon some of their digital imaging patents. While they already have an existing lawsuit directed at Apple, this one brings more devices to the table. HTC meanwhile are being targeted through their EVO View 4G, Flyer, Jetstream, Vivid, Amaze 4G, Desire, EVO Design 4G, Hero S, Rezound, Rhyme, Sensation 4G and the Wildfire S devices. That's a lot of Android. Notably missing from the list are any of HTC's Windows Phone devices.

Florian Mueller from FOSS Patents speculates this may be due to Kodak attempting to gain attention with their patent portfolio while they shop around for a potential buyer.

Florian Mueller dismissing a suit against Apple without considering its merits? Inconceivable!
