Kodak patent sale gets ok
A sale of 1,100 digital imaging patents from Kodak’s large portfolio was approved by a bankruptcy judge in New York City on Monday. Kodak has said that it would need the money from the patent sale if it is too successfully emerge from bankruptcy. The patents may bring as much as $2 billion dollars at auction. About one dozen patents are also laid claim to by Apple Inc. and an Apple spinoff, Flashpoint Technology.
Monday’s hearing was not marked by the squabbles of the previous week since several licensees of Kodak had received assurances that their rights to use the patents as part of a licensing agreement would not be infringed.
Business Insider says Wegmans fosters a “fanatical following”
A recent list in Business Insider Magazine purported to tabulate 25 companies with “fanatical” followings among their customers. Local grocery store Wegmans was listed as one such company, and Business Insider published examples of fan poetry, hymns and love letters composed to show their love for the retailer.
A Wegmans store, it seemed so far away.
But a new one opened in Dulles today.
Now I will drive
Towards Wegmans’ way.
