Java Ruling is Kodak's Sugar Daddy

A jury decided Friday that Sun's Java software is infringing on a Kodak software patent. It appears that Microsoft might be exposed to similar infringement action. Here's a snippet:
Democrat & Chronicle:: "Eastman Kodak Co. will return to U.S. District Court next week to seek $1 billion in damages from Sun Microsystems Inc. now that a federal jury has ruled in its favor in a dispute over the Java computer language."

I suppose the settlement cash will help Kodak as it transitions from traditional to digital imaging.
