The Kodak Ch11 issues must be resolved by Feb. 2013 or it goes into Ch8 (IIRC).
Kodak owns some of the key digital patents outside of the Apple suit. The same is true of analog patents. The problem is that most buyers are scared away from buying the patents as if they do, they might face some sort of encumberment from Kodak debtors if the Ch11 fails.
So, there is interest in the patents per se, but no one wants to be encumbered by such a large purchase.
It is like finding some great property but with a tenuous deed. You are afraid to buy!
Just more of a reason why there is almost no hope at all that Kodak will survive bankruptcy.
