After 130 years in business, Eastman Kodak has filed for bankruptcy protection, capping a prolonged plunge for what remains one of America’s best-known companies.
Once sovereign of the photographic industry, Kodak saw its main market eroded by the rapid adoption of digital cameras and shifted its business from film to printers in order to cope. The company has also sought to sell its 1,100 digital patents, the key to its remaining value, to survive.
Does Kodak still have a future?
