Kodak Moments, a division of Kodak Alaris, has settled a patent infringement lawsuit that it brought against Citizen Systems, DNP Imagingcomm and Dai Nippon Printing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.
The suit alleged that certain printers sold or manufactured by these companies infringed Kodak Alaris’ panoramic printing patents. Panoramic thermal printing is a technique used to produce large format premium photo products at retail using conventional small format printers and media.
As a result of the litigation and the mutually agreeable settlement, Citizen, DNP and Dai Nippon have taken a license to Kodak Alaris’ panoramic printing patents.
“We are encouraged to have been able to settle this matter,” said Nicki Zongrone, President of Kodak Moments. “Kodak Alaris’ Kodak Moments division will continue to defend its intellectual property rights with thermal printer manufacturers.”
