Kodak Loses Latest Round in Ongoing Legal Battle with Collins Inkjet
March 11, 2014

A federal judge in Ohio has temporarily stopped Eastman Kodak Co. from charging different prices for refurbishing a piece of printing equipment depending on whether those customers use Kodak-made ink or a competitor’s.

Collins Inkjet Corp. of Ohio sued Kodak in September, alleging the Rochester printing technology company was unfairly trying to claim all the Versamark ink business by telling users of the Kodak-made printing press line that getting printheads refurbished would cost more if they used non-Kodak inks.

Kodak and Collins Ink Corp. on Monday agreed to a one-week extension of a 10-year-old business arrangement that fell apart in recent days. The two companies worked out the extension in closed-door meetings at the federal courthouse in downtown Rochester. They had been scheduled to appear before U.S. District Court Judge David G. Larimer for a hearing on an injunction request Kodak filed last week.

Kodak was seeking to force Collins to continue supplying inkjet ink for its Versamark printer line, with Kodak serving as a reseller.

Kodak has argued that Collins’ talk of financial instability is a red herring
