Rumor: Possible BlackBerry Shutdown Coming Soon?

1 comment

Research In Motion, makers of the BlackBerry, just had a major setback in court.

BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd. on Wednesday was pushed closer to a possible shutdown of its U.S. mobile e-mail service after a judge refused to delay a patent infringement case and rejected a disputed settlement with patent holder NTP Inc.

RIMM shares halted trading on the news. RIMM has already said it will implement a software "workaround" if a U.S. court issues an injunction to shut down its service in the United States.


Good ol' US Patent Law

Regular laws are often pretty dumb, but i think our patent laws are beyond ridiculous...
