Kodak exploring strategic alternatives for fundamental digital imaging patent portfolios

Kodak’s portfolios include more than 1,100 U.S. patents pertaining to capturing, processing, storing, organizing, editing, and sharing digital images, as well as imaging monetization applications, which are fundamental to the digital imaging industry. Those patents represent approximately 10% of Kodak’s total U.S. patent portfolio.

To assist in this effort, Kodak has retained Lazard LLC as its adviser. As the effort proceeds, Kodak will continue to pursue its successful patent licensing program as well as all litigation related to its digital imaging technology.

Kodak invented the digital camera and since then has pioneered many of the major advances in digital imaging devices, systems and services. The company’s portfolios of more than 1,100 digital imaging patents – plus foreign counterparts and related patent applications – comprise the world’s richest collection of imaging-related technology.
