I have been quite fond of Apple in the past. I really liked there company (especially compared to Microsoft).

But this is the 10 bazillionth thing I've seen in the news section on Apple screwing somebody over. I have just lost my remaining respect for Apple.

So, Kodak sues Apple for legitimately infringing on their IP, and they had it coming?

“Our primary interest is not to disrupt the availability of any product but to obtain fair compensation for the unauthorized use of our technology,” Quatela added. “There’s a basic issue of fairness that needs to be addressed. The failure of companies to appropriately compensate Kodak for the unauthorized use of our patented technology impedes our ability to continue to innovate and introduce new products.”

Ahh yes, there is nothing more "considerate" than a frivolous lawsuit filed with the intention of stealing another companies (meaning shareholders) assets, in this case patents that Kodak has and that Apple wants- without paying for them of course.

From the Forbes article:
Quote:
“As we have stated before, Kodak is the leader in digital imaging innovation and we have invested hundreds of millions of dollars creating our pioneering patent portfolio,” Kodak Co-President Laura Quatela said in a statement. The company said that they have held numerous discussions with both companies, but have not been able to reach an agreement.

“Our primary interest is not to disrupt the availability of any product but to obtain fair compensation for the unauthorized use of our technology,” Quatela added. “There’s a basic issue of fairness that needs to be addressed. The failure of companies to appropriately compensate Kodak for the unauthorized use of our patented technology impedes our ability to continue to innovate and introduce new products.”

The issue isn't that Apple has filed one or two lawsuits , the issue is that Apple is on a lawsuit filing frenzy, many of which have no basis in fact or reason at all and this lawsuit against Kodak falls into the latter category IMO. Smaller companies cannot afford to fight these, and either relent and give Apple what they want (which is in essence extortion- give Apple what they want or you will be destroyed, even if you "win") or they decide to fight and are swamped by Apples endless stockpile of money. If you like companies who abuse the legal system to no-ones advantage but their own, then by all means buy all the Apple products you possibly can- heck I even recommend buying as much stock in them as you can, they are a patent stealing juggernaut and their bottom line is getting better with each frivolous lawsuit. The losers here are small corporations, those who work for those small corporations, and of course the consumesr of tech products, which is all of us.

I can see it now The New icamera from apple. Then they will receive a grammy or something for inventing the digital camera and be recognized for their contribution to the photography industry.

I don't understand the source...first it says Apple is Suing Kodak, but then it goes on to say the Kodak is suing Apple and Apple is trying to say they can't sue them because Kodak is going through bankruptcy.

So who is suing who here?

Regardless...I find it hard to believe that Apple could sue Kodak for anything. Not patent related anyway. Didn't they pretty much invent the digital camera?

Well, to be fair, he did start out by designing circuit boards for Atari, I think, so yes, he does know a resistor from a transistor.

According to Wikipedia Kodak patented the Digital Camera before Apple was founded:

Digital Camera:
Quote:
Steven Sasson as an engineer at Eastman Kodak invented and built the first digital camera using a charge-coupled device image sensor in 1975.[2][3] He received the National Medal in Technology and Innovation for this invention in 2009.

Apple Inc. :
Quote:
Apple was established on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne,[1] to sell the Apple I personal computer kit. They were hand-built by Wozniak[20][21] and first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club.[22] The Apple I was sold as a motherboard (with CPU, RAM, and basic textual-video chips)—less than what is today considered a complete personal computer.[23] The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 and was market-priced at $666.66 ($2,572 in 2012 dollars, adjusted for inflation.)

Sort of makes it difficult to claim that you patented something before the company existed, but this has not stopped Apple Inc. from claiming it is their patent along with many other patents owned by Kodak relating to Digital Imaging.

P.S> Sure was nice of Kodak to let the guy who actually invented the digital camera recieve an award for it, rather than the CEO of the company like Apple did regarding their "technical innovations in the music industry" GRAMMY(s), both of which were given to Steve Jobs.

P.S P.S> Of all of the prices that could have been chosen for their first computer, Apple decided on $666! Not $670, not $665 , but $666. Coincidence? rolleyes.gif
