' 1 Monday, January 23, 1978 Ukiah Daily Journal, Uklah, Calif.—3 K6dak guiIty of amdteur market monopoly NEW YORK (UPI) — The giant Eastman Kodak Co. has been found guilty of monopolizing the nation's anlateur phptography business in what a. defense atuirney said was £in, un- prececlented antitrust trial by a U.S. District Court jury. , Kodak, often dubbed the father of amateur photography, was found guilty of violating federal antitrust laws in a $300 million civil suit by a comparatively small competitor, Berkey Photo Inc. of New York. The verdict, returned Saturday after eight days of deliberation by eight women and two men, found Kodak cornered the market with its technological advances. John Doar, Kodak's chief lawyer, said the firm would appeal. He said he believes the six- month triai, which' involved complicated testimony, represented the first time a jury was called upon to judge the conduct of a major corporation. Most antitrust actions' are tried before a judge., it was the first of four antitrust complaints filed against Kodak in 1973. Damages against the firm, headquartered in Rochester, N.Y., will be set during another jury trial that is scheduled to begin Feb. 21. Kodak was found guilty of monopolizing the amateur markets, but the jury did not find the firm was involved yi an unlawful conspiracy to monopolize. The jurors agreed with Berkey's charges that Kodak, with annual sales of nearly $6 billion, had cornered the market in areas such as conventional amateur still and movie cameras, color film and color print paper, color negative printers and photo- finishing services, equipment and chemicals, , The p^el also found that Kodak received excessive benefits frohn its cooperation with General Electric and Sylvania in developing pocket camera flip-flash units. Kodak Chairman Walter A. Fallon said, "The process of appeal is available to us and we shall use that process to bring this case to what we are confident will be a favorable Juvenile Justice conclusion." Fallon" said the court "applied, an incorrect standard of law in the case" by letting the jurors answer 35 questions «p-esented by presiding Judge ''Marvin Frahkd. -. ' Antitrust laws should pre, serve the "competitive princess" and not insulate competitors "from the rigors of the marketplace," Fallon said. He said the firm believes "as strongly as ever that Kodak's introduction of new and innovative products has not violated the law."
