More NTP Patents Struck Down
Jun 23, 2005, 1:35 AM by (staff)
The U.S. Patent Office struck down two more of NTP's patents on wireless email. Only one of NTP's original patents remains, and a decision on the final remaining patent is expected soon. Although it shocked many, RIM's recent announcement that they had not yet settled their patent dispute with NTP is not as surprising in light of NTP's recent defeats. If all the patents are struck down, NTP will no longer have any grounds to sue RIM. NTP still has the right to appeal the Patent Office's decisions, and RIM will probably not be cleared of charges unless those appeals are struck down as well.
