Kodak announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against Samsung, alleging infringement of certain patents related to Kodak digital imaging technology. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York, alleges that certain Samsung tablets infringe patented Kodak digital imaging technology.
