Klausner Sues Motorola, RIM Over Visual Voicemail Patents
I'm actually getting sick of this Klausner company. They've sued every manufacture, cell phone company, just eveyone.
I wonder how sick you'd be if they were your patents.
That is just unethical. If you have a patent, I believe you should be obligated to use the patent and bring your product to market. Klausner has had the patent since 1994, why haven't they produced an application for it?RIM's VVM app for example is made by RIM, not Klausner.
Venturing over to their website is a trip down Give-Me-A-Goddamn-Break lane. There's no place on the website that even lists its product offerings, it's all links to different emails about patents in question.
This type o...
The problem with Klausner, from what I have seen, (and please someone correct me if I'm wrong), is that they seem to just be holding the patents for the sole purpose of suing people who use them and make them pay royalties for their use.
If you own a patent, you own it...period. If they change the law, fine, but until then...
I mean, the only application I see for this is that you can show off how you don't deal with voice messages people leave you.
Apparently it's a lucrative patent.
Do you know how RIM got Blackberry? Blackberry infringed on their patents.
Thank you so much for bringing up my favorite example!
Just to clear up your quote, I take it what you are referring to is the lawsuit between NTP, INC (a patent holding company) and RIM. RIM has always owned BlackBerry. They never "got" BlackBerry from anyone but themselves.
NTP claimed that the BES and BIS infringed on their patents, and sued RIM over it with their ideal end result to SHUT DOWN BlackBerry. In the end the courts found BlackBerry to be essential to national security and determined that was not an option. RIM eventually had to pay NTP about 650 million dollars to settle.
All I'm saying is...
If people threaten to not use their product anymore they may shutup.
