Kodak is suing Apple iPhone and Blackberry over a patent Kodak owns which includes a method of previewing images.
Kodak has filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) alleging that both the iPhone and camera-enabled BlackBerry devices infringe on a patent that Kodak holds covering a method for previewing images. Kodak also filed two additional suits against Apple in U.S. District Court claiming infringement of patents related to digital cameras and certain computer processes.

The two biggest rivalling mobile phone brands of 2009 getting sued? Patents are complicating. In a world of patents, sharing is not caring. It's money, and Kodak is going to make sure they get a fair compensation for the use of their technology.
