    There are some problems here. Two or more companies have formed a consortium to purchase these patents, thereby raising issues of monopoly and other things frowned upon by the US courts. Therefore the purchase may have to be ruled upon by some other court than the bankruptcy court. This gets stickier and stickier.

    The legal fees must be enormous here. Yet another thing to drain away Kodak's limited cash.

    ... of potential interest, there is a posting from someone who says she is PR rep for the (UK?) film and paper division over on Rangefinder forum.

    So is this the beginning of the long-awaited attempt to spin-off?

    According to the Kodak Professional facebook page, portra, ektar, tri-x, etc. all fall under "consumer". Maybe by commercial they mean motion picture...

    The article that PE linked to above says that Kodak is going to sell its Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses. Later in the article it says that the Personalized Imaging business includes Paper & Output Solutions, which includes "... the broadest portfolio of traditional photographic paper and still camera film products."

    So that sounds like motion picture film will remain Kodak, and the paper and still camera film will become ... something else. Not Kodak. Will it still be "Tri-X" and "Ektar 100", and "Portra", and so on? Let's hope so, and let's hope it means that production of E6 products might be resumed.

    Anyway, this sounds positive for the future of Kodak's film and paper products, even if it's not Kodak any more.

    Thanks for sharing that. Actually Colleen is based in New York, she probably took on that name to help with the other rumor that started on the site that was via a UK Kodak customer service rep.

    Anyone know where Kodak chemistry falls in this?

    I thought Kodak chemistry was already spun off a while back, and is a profitable business. Ron will surely know.
