On June 8, the Wall Street Journal ran an article about Kodak's stalled effort to sell its digital patents, which may complicate Kodak's ability to emerge from bankruptcy. Kodak says "an independent review" values the patents at up to $2.6 billion and hopes to use money from patent sale to compete against HP in the market for printers. Competing with HP in the market for printers? Don't forget Canon, Brother, and all the others. Even if Kodak gets $2.6 billion this sounds like a difficult journey.
See the WSJ article Kodak's Patent Allure Fades for further details.
