Judge Spencer today resumed hearing NTP's patent infringement case against RIM as scheduled. NTP was first to make its plea, asking for $126 million in damages, and undisclosed settlement amount, and a shutdown of Blackberry service after a 30-day grace period until a settlement is reached. RIM will present its case next, followed by the US Government lawyers. NTP's council is suggesting RIM be forced to pay the damages immediately.

If all patents are rejected, it will be difficult for NTP to demand payment for violation of invalid patents. Despite the Dept. of Justice and USPTO's efforts, many analysts believe that the judge will issue an injunction against RIM.

who's thinking injunction and why?

I hope there is an injunction. RIM did something wrong and they need to be punished, if they dont settle. I dont care if you have a blackberry and you really need it, stop whinning. I have one too and I could careless if I can not use it anymore.
