    I don't see the use of initiative at all.

    Either buy that company or not. But do not complain.

    Ha Ha NO WAY! I owned about 1000 shares of Kodak which cost me about $28,000 and he managed to make them worth nothing. No thanks.

    I think the issue is nobody wants the word Kodak to be sold off (like so many other US photographic names - like Argus - ) and simply put on a box of 'film' of questionable quality.

    That Facebook page isn't about saving Kodak, it's about shooting your mouth instead of a camera!

    Want to save Kodak? Shoot film. Lots of film.

    Are you equating 'Asian company" with Fuji? I don't think that was what meant. (Fujifilm doesn't have any need of the Kodak brand name.)

    I shoot quite a bit of film but the amount of film that "I" shoot ain't gonna save Kodak. Sorry.

    Even losing another $28,000 on their stock will not save them.

    People have to believe that they can make money again. Then they might have a chance.

    On the film side, the movie makers have to start shooting lots of 1,000 foot reels of film of all kinds again. Then they may have a chance.

    i'm not on FB and even if i was, i wouldn't bother with petitions like this.
    i don't really see a point.
    lets say every member ( not subscriber ) of this website went out and bought film
    it wouldn't make a dent in film sales.

    the only way KODAK will be saved is if the management figures out what they are doing
    sells off their digital patents, scales down their film operations and learns how
    to be viable now and 2-5 years from now ...

    oh well,

    i agree with brad, its kind of funny
