Eastman Kodak has filed a suit against Sony at the U.S. District Court for New York's Western District. The suit accuses Sony and several of its subsidiaries of infringing 10 of Kodak's patents.

Kodak is seeking unspecified damages and injunctions against further infringement against Sony for violating Kodak patents on digital and video camera technologies.

Sony said in a statement that they had not broken Kodak digital-imaging patents, and that the company will "vigorously defend" itself.
