Why the heck would anyone buy it though the patents maybe?
Because it went bankrupt so it will be selling for pennies on the dollar (Maybe:D). This could be a great time to turn a profit for someone interested in purchasing their businesses.
Make money while youre at it.
I think what rapid1 is getting at is why anybody would want to get into the film business when its all digital now. Phones are the new camera and they don't use film so why would anybody want to buy dated technology, maybe for some of the patents but I don't know how those would be relevant going forward.
Agree with rapid1 and karanm; why would you pickup a dying business? The print business should have been cannibalized by now, and its assets redistributed throughout the Kodak enterprise.
Perhaps some inventor somewhere will find a use for it that's surprisingly attractive and they'll manage to keep it alive for awhile longer.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
Yea it definitely could be a great opportunity for anyone trying to pick up a solid income make a few tweaks and keep making money from a time tested revenue source
I am glad to see that Kodak is raising more capital other than just suing people to raise capital, i hope that they aren't taking this money to fund their lawsuits but using it to build a business and model that doesn't just survive but thrives in the industry.
I am not sure if printers is the best arena for them to jump into too, due to the tough competition from HP, Konica MInolta, Brother and several other industrial size to consumer size printer manufacturers.
RIP film RIP Kodak :P
I still remember using my Kodak "normal" camera
