RIM Gets Some Bright News

News - By: pdaBlast! Staff - December 03, 2005

It's been an up and down battle between RIM and NTP this week. It looked like RIM was headed for a shutdown of service in the US as U.S. District Judge James R. Spencer ruled RIM's $450 million infringement settlement agreement with Virginia patent holding firm NTP is unenforceable. The decision was seen as another huge setback for RIM.

Less than a day later the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has rejected one of the five patents in dispute between BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion and NTP. The ruling is not final and NTP is expected to contest the decision.

What happens next is anyone's guess. They two companies may settle or RIM may attempt a software workaround that would allow RIM to keep their service active in the US while not stepping on NTP's patent. Stay tuned.
