NTP seems to be very ticked off with the Department of Justice backing up RIM in their patent-infringement case against them. The widow of NTP Inc. founder Thomas Campana has written a letter to two Illinois senators complaining about the â€œgross injusticeâ€ that she is suffering at the hands of the U.S. government.
The letter was written in response to the U.S. Department of Justiceâ€™s request â€œto stay any consideration of the reimposition of an injunctionâ€ on sales and services of BlackBerry in the U.S. for at least 90 days. It was addressed to both Senators in her home state of Illinois, Barak Obama and Richard Durbin, both of the Democratic Party.
â€œTom was an American success story â€” a veteran who built his company and contributed to the development of wireless technology,â€ the letter said. â€œHe is entitled to the same patent protection as big companies. I know that I do not have as much money or political influence as a large company like RIM, but I ask for your assistance in this matter. It is bad enough that my government will not act to protect me, but it is even worse that the Department of Justice is acting against me.
