Ampex CorporationAmpex vs. Kodak Litigation Federal District Court : Ampex Corporation initiated litigation against Kodak in October 2004 for infringement of one of Ampex's patents used in digital still cameras. Proceedings were initiated at the International Trade Commission (ITC) and also in U.S. District Court in Delaware. The District Court suit was automatically stayed for the duration of the ITC proceeding. Ampex and Kodak have been unable to agree on a license under the patent in suit. Any remedy that might be granted to Ampex by the ITC would be limited by the expiration date of the patent, which is April 2006. Accordingly, Ampex has determined that it would be preferable to continue the litigation in District Court.
Ampex vs. Kodak Litigation Federal District CourtAmpex - Seeking damages for sales
In District Court Ampex is seeking damages for sales from the date of written notification of the patent to Kodak, which was August 2001. Ampex has filed a motion with the ITC seeking to terminate the proceeding. This will remove the stay on the District Court litigation which would accelerate the timing of the District Court suit which Ampex will continue to pursue.
