Eastman Kodak lost a ruling in a two-year legal fight against Apple and Research in Motion over a patent for digital image-preview technology. The decision may hurt the value of assets Kodak is selling.
RIM and Apple did not violate Kodak’s rights because the patent was invalid, said Thomas Pender, a judge for the United States International Trade Commission, in a notice posted on the agency’s Web site. Kodak said it would appeal the findings with the six-member commission in Washington, which has the power to block imports of products that infringe on American patents.
