    KODAK EVERYDAY® ORIGINAL Legal?

    How is this legal?

    They offer emulations of many films, not just KODAK.

    Alienskin has been doing this for years. Their Polaroid emulations are pretty close to the real thing.

    Perhaps they have licensed use of the name. Kodak will license the use of its name for almost anything - batteries, VHS tapes, bitcoin mining machines...

    What specifically is illegal about it? There's a disclaimer at the bottom of the page with respect to brands, trademarks and endorsement.

    I asked a question not a statement.

    My bad, I should have said "what specific aspect(s) of it raised a question in your mind as to whether it might be illegal?

    Songs have copyright. Inks are proprietary. As are emulsions. Lens designs have patents. Images have copyright. Pantone color are copyrighted. https://www.pantone.com/about/terms-of-use

    Evidently preset emulations are legal. As defined as a Photoshop action?

    You're asking if emulating an emulsion's look is legal?

    I'm not aware of any legal protection that would protect the appearance of the film grain.

    Or am I misunderstanding your question (again)?

    It's not just grain, but shades of color, tonality etc. Film has a signature.

    They include color film and slide.





    Even Kodak Yellow is a Pantone.
