Apple and Google join together to buy patents Kodak

It is very paradoxical situations: litigation of patents, Google and Apple have proposed a joint bid of 500 $ million to acquire patents Kodak.




Apple and Google will join forces to make a joint bid to the 1100 Kodak patents auctioned. The company had requested to be placed under the protection of Chapter 11 in the United States in January 2012. She now seek to reduce its activities and to sell some assets, including its patents. These cover the capture, manipulation and sharing of digital images.

According to Bloomberg, this consortium is the cause of an auction valued at 500 million euros. A while ago, Apple and Google have each said to be involved separately in the auction. When you know the conflicting reports on patents between the two protagonists, one can only wonder such an association. However, the economic newspaper explains, "improbable partnerships are typical sales of patents, because they allow competitors to prevent a potential action for infringement. For the record, before the bankruptcy, Kodak has launched lawsuits for patent infringement against Apple and HTC. The imaging specialist had estimated the value of its patents to 2.6 billion.
