no I did not work for Polariod or have any involvement in any way.

I merely read some if the litigation.

Kodak were lucky that the judge assessing the damages only awarded a fraction of the claim. I was well impressed with the quality of the judgement.

But one of the patents involved the automatic or manual
ejection of a print not as you say instant photography.

One did / does not need to be technical to see that it was wilful to ignore that?

Did you work for Kodak?

I confess I liked my Kodak camera and kept it until this year only giving it to a friend as a museum display...
