From DailyTech: As we have seen with Samsung and Apple, patent lawsuits are becoming a common occurrence in the tech world. One such patent suit has been ongoing between Apple and Kodak. Kodak filed bankruptcy in January 2012 and is seeking to sell off two different patent portfolios to raise money to pay creditors.
Apple stepped in and sued Kodak for patent infringement, claiming that it owned 10 patents that were in the portfolios Kodak wanted to sell. The judge overseeing Kodak's bankruptcy has previously denied some of Apple's claims.
Kodak won a partial victory against Apple in court this week. The judge overseeing the case ruled in favor of Kodak on two out of the 10 patents in question.
Kodak had requested that the judge grant a summary judgment, and the judgment was granted on two of those patents. The other patents in the case were denied a summary judgment with the judge saying the Kodak could renew the request based on "a more complete record."
The judge overseeing the case wrote, "If Apple’s claims proceed despite their unreasonably delayed commencement, Kodak might have to go back to the drawing board for ways to fund its case."
