Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Fujifilm Corp. sued Eastman Kodak Co., alleging that it infringed patents for digital cameras.

Fujifilm, based in Tokyo, sued Eastman Kodak over four digital-camera patents after talks between the companies were unsuccessful, according to a complaint filed today in federal court in Manhattan.

Kodak manufactured and sold products in the U.S., including the EasyShare C340 and EasyShare M530 digital cameras, that violated the patents, Fujifilm alleged in the complaint. It seeks damages and a jury trial.

Christopher Veronda, a spokesman for Rochester, New York-based Kodak, didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment on the suit.

The case is Fujifilm Corp. v. Eastman Kodak Co., 1:11-cv-07247, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
