Kodak Scores A Win Against Apple In Their Patent Fight

Eastman Kodak has scored a victory with an initial ruling from a U.S. International Trade Commission judge stating that the company has not infringed two Apple patents cited in a lawsuit filed last year:

Neither of the two patents in Apple’s case before the ITC were being infringed, and one of the patents is invalid, Judge Robert Rogers in Washington said yesterday. The judge’s findings are subject to review by the six-member ITC, which has the power to block imports of products that infringe U.S. patents.

That’s gotta suck for Apple’s iLawyers. But you have to keep in mind that this is just an initial ruling and is still subject to full ITC review. So this isn’t over just yet. Which is good if you’re a lawyer.
