Wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone shared and played nicely together ;o)
Seems the tech giants are not stepping out of the courtrooms any time soon. Hey, come on! Move yourselves into the labs and give us the next big gadget!
I agree with you, go ahead on the suing thing. You deserve to receive the compensation. Since you have licenced the patent to NOKIA, SAMSUNG, LG getting compensation from APPLE and HTC is a good thing. The patent belongs to you and APPLE and HTC is making money out of it.
Smartphones with camera is booming business, it no suprise not many people buys camera nowadays but it's not the point. The point is, patent is yours and you have every right to get compensated for.
'patent infringement'. WTF? What are companies doing to eachother lately? Is this really the new trend to become rich?
Kodak failed to see the digital camera introduction & nearly went out of business then, they have a right to sue if the companies are using there technology without consent. Companies that adapt to change are being wiped out (Nokia almost left it too late).
soon kodak will only sell patent in their shop.. no more camera and print service... lol
The same with Microsoft and Apple, trying to keep the patent above windowed mode ons operational sistems...
I'll Patent the wheel!!!!
like the music industry fighting against the rise of mp3 instead of embracing it. the camera purists playing down the rise of digital photography that is now in the pocket of everyone with a mobile phone.No one cares that the snap of their kids isn't SLR quality their more amazed that its on facebook the moment they hit the share feature, and thats why kodak should be compensated. Lets hope its not to late for kodak to make a run at the mobile phone arena with their 16MP Android-running Kodak Polaroid SC1630 cause not many people carry an expensive camera in their pockets.
adam kimsyon, 11 Jan 2012kodak only sueing them because they are in the edge of bankruptcyYou took the words out of my mouth. Guess it's their last ditch effort to get some revenue after all they don't seem to be able to sell their patent war chest..
kodak only sueing them because they are in the edge of bankruptcy
TRendy, 11 Jan 2012Wowzzy suing is becoming a trend...soon i will sue anyone who yawn after me. yeah! wait...what... moreI'll patent the expression "objection overruled"!
MWAHA! MWAHA! MWHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Here we go again another case, maybe later on will see basking Robbins sue Android for the ICS and galaxy chocolate company sue Samsung for the galaxy phones LOL.
I really hope they win this, I'm an HTC user myself but patents are patents. If you wanna use someone else's tech in something that will make you money then you should damn well pay for it.
generally i would associate kodak with the cheaper camera brands as you would often see their disposable cameras in shops, the technology discussed above isn't necessarily important in a camera, if they focused more on the imaging aspect of cameras they would be more competitive with other camera manufactures, rather than losing out to the much faster moving smartphone world where mobile phones have become much more capable where online functions are needed.
either way, they're clearly not selling enough products if they're now relying on selling patients to keep their business going.
