South Korea-based, Samsung Electronics now has a new worry in its kitty. As if battling it out with Apple over a series of alleged patent infringements was not enough, Samsung now has a fresh set of accusations from Eastman Kodak to deal with. Reportedly, Eastman Kodak Company has accused Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd of infringing on a set of five patents pertaining to digital imaging, owned by the former.
