Kodak is suing Sony for infringing patents related to its digital cameras. It claims that Sony breached 10 patents between 1987 and 2003. Kodak is seeking damages and an injunction to prevent further infringements.
Kodak is moving from its dominant position in film cameras to challenge Sony, which holds the top spot for digital cameras.
Kodak says it took the action after the failure of licensing talks with its rival. ®
