We derive Maxwell's equations on the κ-deformed spacetime, valid up to first order in the deformation parameter, using Feynman's approach. We show that the electric-magnetic duality is a symmetry of these equations. It is also shown that the laws of electrodynamics are different for particles of equal charges, but with different masses. We show that the Poincaré angular momentum, required to maintain the usual Lorentz algebra structure, do not get any κ-dependent corrections.
