Kodak is Selling 1,100 Digital Imaging Patents

Posted Aug 18, 2011

Kodak’s patent portfolio is worth five times the company itself, and Kodak is responding to the siren song of “five times the money” by shopping some of its patents around. The company has been doing a lot of licensing of its digital imaging patents for the past few years, but it appears it’s time to sell a few of them. Business Week reports that Kodak hired Lazard Ltd. to market 1,100 of their patents, about 10% of the portfolio.

Kodak’s Steve Sasson invented the world’s first digital camera in 1975.
