Beleaguered Kodak could face another court appearance, after Apple asked a bankruptcy court in New York for permission to sue the company for patent infringement.

Apple yesterday formally asked the state's federal bankruptcy court for its agreement to bring the case before the International Trade Commission, Reuters reported.

The Apple Mac and iPod maker hopes to stop Kodak from importing a range of its products, including digital cameras and printers, which it claims contain technology for which it holds the patent.

The warring companies have batted lawsuits back and forth this year, with Kodak claiming last month that Apple had, in turn, infringed some of its patents relating to digital cameras.

Kodak filed for bankruptcy last month, and it said in a statement in response to Apple's action that the latter was still violating its intellectual property rights.

It claimed that its refusal to pay compensation for this was partly responsible for the company's current situation.
