Ricoh Takes Legal Action Against Kodak
April 26, 2013
According to The Recycler, Ricoh Americas Corp. has now filed a lawsuit against Eastman Kodak Co. alleging that the OEM has infringed on seven of its patents from the manufacturing and sale of some of its printers.
The particular patents to which Ricoh is referring are U.S. patent 6,209,048; 6,231,652 B1; 6,256,662 B1; 7,344,326 B2; 7,508,533 B2; 7,712,989 B2; and 7,719,702 B2. Ricoh’s aim is to permanently stop Kodak from any further infringements, claiming that each “‘manufacture, use, import, sale and/or offering for sale’” is itself “‘a separate act of infringement’”
Kodak is no stranger to infringement lawsuits, having been accused of patent infringement recently by both Kyocera Corp. and Shutterfly. The former began proceedings against Kodak this past January, alleging infringement against more than 15 camera and printer patents. For the latter, they belief that Kodak’s “My Kodak Moments App” violates an earlier sale of Kodak Gallery to the company. Shutterfly began their actions thispast March.
