Afterhammering out an auto trade agreement with Japan,U.S. Trade Representative Mickey Kantor is expected to announce next week that the U.S. will launch a yearlong review of whether Japan and Fuji Film have conspired to prevent Kodak from capturing more than 9 percent of the Japanese film market. Kodak charges that Fuji limits access to markets by controlling the largest film distributors. TIME's Adam Zagorin says Kodak's lawyers have prepared a meticulous case based on nearly a year of research and say they can show exactly how Japan's government has restricted their business in the country. The U.S. might impose unspecified sanctions if Japan is found guilty after the review.
