Kodak looks for money from digital imaging


ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Eastman Kodak Co. Wednesday said it’s looking at ways to turn 1,100 patents on digital imaging into ready money, perhaps through a sale.

The 131-year-old photography company’s shares are close to their lowest level in more than 30 years. The announcement comes while Kodak is suing Apple Inc. and Research In Motion Ltd., the maker of the BlackBerry phones, saying their phone camera features infringe on some patents.

Rochester, N.Y.-based Kodak this week scored a minor victory as the U.S. International Trade Commission rejected a counterclaim by Apple that Kodak cameras infringe on Apple patents.
