January 12, 2012 - On January 10, Kodak filed suit against Apple and HTC in U.S. District Court in New York, alleging infringement of four patents that cover aspects of sending photos directly from smartphones and other mobile devices. Kodak claims the technology is used in the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Kodak has already licensed some smartphone makers, including LG, Motorola, Nokia and Samsung, and plans to pursue legal action against Research in Motion for infringement of the same patents.

Kodak is requesting a trial, an injunction and triple damages for willful infringement.
