RIM Re-Filing Case Against NTP
Jun 9, 2005, 3:36 PM by (staff)
RIM and NTP entered into in agreement this past March whereby RIM would pay NTP $450 million and NTP would drop all patent violations suits against the company. Since then, however, the companies have still not been able to agree on the exact terms of the deal. RIM claims NTP is not cooperating, and is taking NTP back to court. During the legal process or as part of the judgement, it is possible that RIM could be forced to stop selling their Blackberry devices in the US. An injuction is unlikely since one of NTP's five patents on wireless email was rejected in April and others are still under review.

Current Customers Beware

It'll never ...
