RIM Allowed To Continue Handheld Sales
Aug 6, 2003, 10:56 PM by (staff)
A Virgina court yesterday ruled against Reseach in Motion (RIM) in a patent lawsuit brought by NTP Holdings. NTP was awarded $53.7 million in damages and won an injunction to prevent RIM from selling its BlackBerry handhelds in the U.S., although the injunction was immediately stayed, pending an appeal by RIM. NTP is claiming that RIM has been infringing on NTP patents for wireless email technology. RIM is seeking to have NTP's patents voided, and it will be at least another year before the appeal is settled. If RIM loses on appeal, it will be prevented from selling wireless handhelds until 2012.
