Citation Edit

Eastman Kodak Co. v. Image Technical Servs., Inc., 504 U.S. 451 (1992) (full-text).

Factual Background Edit

Independent servicers of photocopying equipment alleged that Kodak had monopolized the market for repair of its machines by withholding the replacement parts necessary for repairing Kodak machines.

U.S. Supreme Court Proceedings Edit

The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed a ruling denying summary judgment to Kodak. It found that Kodak may have had the power to control prices or exclude competition in the service market based in part on the switching costs that its installed customer base would incur if they used an independent service organization after purchasing a Kodak copier.[1]
