Supremes Send Back RIM Case
Jan 23, 2006, 1:04 PM by (staff)
The US Supreme Court today refused to hear RIM's appeal in the NTP patent case, sending the case back to the district court where the battle has been playing out. RIM had asked the high court to consider whether US patent law applies to Canadian companies, however the court issued no additional orders on this issue when it sent the case back to the district court. RIM's only remaining relief in this case can come from the USPTO, which has already indicated that it will most likely reject all of NTP's remaining patents. However RIM could still be held liable for damages if the district court issues a final judgement before NTP's patents are invalidated.
