Kodak Nails Samsung With Patent Suit
Kodak has licensed its digital imaging patents to more than 30 leading technology companies, including LG, Motorola, and Nokia, with all of the licenses royalty-bearing to Kodak, but of course Samsung isn't on that list (and obviously has no plans to be, yet). We suspect that this will end with Samsung forking out royalty fees to avoid a long, drawn-out court session, but we'll just have to wait and see. Patent licensing seems to be the trick of the trade these days; Microsoft's doing it with pretty much every major Android vendor, and now Kodak's roping in their own. Sigh.
