> Kodak may have done a bad job of capitalizing on its digital talents, but they did develop many ground-breaking technologies before other companies did and so their patents are more valuable.
But a patent in 2012 is only valuable if you can pay a worldwide army of lawyers to defend them (Google (verb) Apple and Google patent suits.) Kodak doesn't have the cash or the will, it seems.
All the folks I know in the MP division deserve to live and fight another day!
