SONY STATEMENT RE KODAK PATENT INFRINGEMENT SUIT

 PARK RIDGE, N.J., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Sony Corporation of America.
 We understand that Kodak's complaint relates to its patent issued in 1981 in the United States, regarding a gap within the magnetic head of recording systems that allegedly provides for higher recording density. The validity of this patent was previously rejected in Japan and Europe by an opposing claim filed by a large number of companies, including Sony, because similar technology had been in the public domain through published literature long before Kodak filed for its patent. Kodak's patent merely followed an existing trend in the video recorder field for shorter wavelength recording and a narrower gap length within the magnetic head.
 Sony will vigorously defend itself on this matter and we believe our position will prevail in the court.
