ITC will review Kodak loss in case against RIM, Apple

WASHINGTON, March 25 Fri Mar 25, 2011 5:18pm EDT

WASHINGTON, March 25 (Reuters) - The International Trade Commission said on Friday that it would review an Eastman Kodak EK.N loss in a patent battle with Research in Motion RIM.TO and Apple Inc. (AAPL.O)

The commission, which hears many patent cases involving imported products, said on Friday it would review a decision by ITC Administrative Law Judge Paul Luckern, who had ruled in January that Research in Motion and Apple did not infringe.

Kodak filed an ITC complaint against Apple and RIM in January 2010, arguing that Apple's iPhone and RIM's camera-enabled Blackberry infringe a Kodak patent related to a method for previewing images.

Kodak is asking the ITC to bar the importation of Apple and RIM mobile phones and other wireless devices with digital cameras.
