Ampex files patent suit against Kodak over digital cameras

To illustrate that patent law is not always the "big guy" suing the "little guy," note that Ampex has filed suit, both at the ITC and in the District of Delaware, against Kodak over digital cameras. Kodak recently was the plaintiff against Sun in a patent suit involving Java issues, and much earlier was the defendant in a suit brought by Polaroid.

-->Ampex Corp. (Redwood City, Calif.) filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission seeking to exclude Eastman Kodak Co. from selling digital cameras in the U.S., alleging the imaging products supplier infringed on its IP.

In addition, Ampex filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware seeking unspecified damages from Kodak for patent infringement. <--
