Kodak's patent: valid on USPTO re-exam but invalid at the ITC

Concerning a patent with a claim relating to previewing low-resolution versions of a moving image while recording still images at a high resolution, the USPTO said Dec. 23 it intended to issue a notice confirming the validity of the patent, according to a Jan. 3 court filing by Kodak.

BUT ALJ Paul Luckern at the ITC said Kodak's patent is invalid because it’s an obvious variation of an earlier invention, and that the Apple and RIM products don’t infringe.
