Kodak Continues to Suck Wind: Sells its Image Sensor Business

Not much is left of this once iconic company -- and brand. Purportedly, Kodak's new business was going to focus a lot on IP licensing and "rights management", but maybe the Kodak patent portfolio isn't as robust as initially advertised and regardless it is absolutely the case that building a business around infringement claims is not a steady or reliable one.

I am sure that the rise and almost certain demise of Kodak will be case studied up and down across many a business schools for years to come. It is certainly "Exhibit A" for a lesson in the creative destruction of capitalism.
