Recently we told you that Kodak is a one step from bankruptcy, which is why the U.S. company launched a crusade to raise money by any method possible. Last week the company filed suit against Apple and HTC in the International Trade Commission and WIN now legal team pointed it at Samsung .
According to a press release New Yorkers filed a federal lawsuit alleging the South Korean corporation that several of your devices (smart phones and tablets) violated five of its patents on digital images
. Kodak evidently are willing to take any action to avoid bankruptcy. As reported by the U.S. company patents involved in the lawsuit include several technologies to capture and transmit images (from the email sent to transfer via cellular networks). For now do not know what Samsung devices would have breached the techniques reported by Kodak. It is ironic that the maximum photo icon had to “downgrade” to fight for patents on digital photos to escape bankruptcy. For many years, Kodak scorned digital photography business
saying that the public would never abandon the printed images, and now I can do more than eat his own words. So far no more news was reported on the issue but when more news on the situation of Kodak, and their claims to the technology giants most successful moment will keep you updated.

For several months Apple and Motorola Mobility maintain a patent litigation in several parts of the world. The final weekend of the block suffered a serious setback, since an administrative law judge belonging to the International Trade Commission United States ruled against her on demand …
recent months we have talked a lot about the conflict between Apple and Samsung. This battle continues adding rounds, and it seems that will not end in the short term because virtually every week we see new events. This time we find an abnormality that can harm Apple .
days ago, the apple had an injunction to block sales of Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe. By the time he had not found anything unusual, until an image appeared and comparative iPad tablet Samsung where you can clearly see that the latter was modified to resemble more Apple’s gadget.
photography (it’s listed at the beginning of the note) clearly shows that the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab were cut to be almost the same level of 9.7 “iPad. Besides the two devices show an aspect ratio of 4:3, when in fact the tablet from the Korean company has a ratio of 16:10 .

has long Apple fight with other companies for the purpose of exercising ownership over the term App Store. There are already several corporations have been sued for using those words, but for now Justice is playing against him to the people of Cupertino.

To prevent that store discontinue using the apple name requested an injunction against the firm originally from Seattle, but the judge handling the case just deny .
This will put back into question the nature of the term App Store. It is worth remembering that a while ago Microsoft asked to delete the Apple trademark on that name has, arguing that it is a generic term that can not be possessed by a particular company
On this occasion the judge hearing the case denied the injunction against Amazon applying similar reasoning. Despite the complaints of Cupertino, the judge said that many software companies use the term App Store and therefore can not fail against the accused .
It is obvious that the legal battle does not end here, but Apple’s legal department will have to find new tools if you want to win this crusade because Justice is putting obstacles difficult to overcome .
