"Kodak has been damaged by the infringement" and wants cash compensation, according to the complaint. It's also seeking a court order to block further use of its technology.
Kodak, based in Rochester, New York, claims that digital cameras made by the companies are using Kodak inventions patented between 1991 and 2001 for image compression, storage, color sensors and previews. The patents are among those Kodak used against Sony in a suit that was settled in January.
Kodak, which popularized film cameras, licenses technology to camera makers, such as Olympus and Sanyo Electric Co. It gets royalties from Sony as part of the patent settlement.
