Newly appointed US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts today rejected an emergency petition from Blackberry manufacturer Research In Motion. A lower district court had issued an injunction that would prevent RIM from selling Blackberries in the US, however that injunction was temporarily suspended while RIM appealed the case. Although charges against RIM have been reduced during previous appeals, the sales injunction still stands. RIM's is still appealing the case but yesterday the US Court of Appeals and today the Supreme Court - the last two courts RIM may appeal to - have rejected a stay against the sales injunction. The decision of if and when sales must be halted now returns to the lower court. Higher courts have not yet announced any decisions on whether they will hear RIM's appeal.

Current owners

I wonder what will happen to current owners of Blackberry phones? Will we continue to recieve service?
There are only a few sectors that will still continue to receive service if this injunction will stand and it is as follows; U.S. federal, state, or local governments.
