Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 6 -- Eastman Kodak Co. has filed a lawsuit claiming that Agfa-Gevaert N.V., based in Mortsel, Belgium, is infringing Kodak patents related to specific medical x-ray film technologies.

Filed in US District Court in Rochester, the complaint claims that Agfa, one of Kodak's primary competitors, is infringing Kodak patents by making and selling a variety of medical x-ray films that employ features covered in Kodak patents for T-Grain emulsion technology and for a crossover-reduction layer in chest x-ray films.

Kodak's suit requests compensation for damages resulting from the infringement, and asks for an injunction that would prohibit Agfa from further sales of products cited in the suit. Kodak did not disclose the amount of damages it seeks.
