Microsoft, Apple and Intellectual Ventures vie with Google, Samsung and others for Kodak patents

Apple, Microsoft and patent aggregation company Intellectual Ventures (founded by ex-Microsoft CTO Nathan Myhrvold) are teaming up to vie for Kodak’s patents against another group formed of Google, patent aggregation firm RPX Corp., and hardware manufacturers including Samsung, LG and HTC, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Eastman Kodak, which has filed for bankruptcy protection, has put 1,100 patents up for sale, the WSJ reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Apple and Microsoft have teamed up before to purchase patents, including participating in coalitions to purchase Nortel and Novell patents. That spurred a series of back-and-forth tweets and blog posts between Microsoft and Google, in which the two companies engaged in a public spat.
