Shutterfly sues Kodak over photo app, report says

The online photo site is looking to shut down an Eastman Kodak app that lets users create albums using Facebook photos, according to Reuters.

Shutterfly is looking to put the kibosh on an Eastman Kodak app that lets users order pictures and albums from images on Facebook. The online photo service on Friday filed a complaint with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan accusing Kodak of violating an earlier agreement with its "My Kodak Moments App," according to Reuters.

Kodak last year agreed to sell Kodak Gallery's customer accounts to Shutterfly for $23.8 million . As part of that deal, Kodak "agreed not to set up a duplicate business," according to Reuters.

In addition, the complaint alleges that the technology behind the My Kodak Moments App is the same that's used for Kodak Gallery.
