RIM wins Visto lawsuit in UK

Comments

GavelVisto’s been on RIM’s back since ’06 for patent infringement, but it looks like the legal battle’s finally drawing to a close. The U.S. Patent Office stomped out a few of their objections on RIM’s use of certain e-mail synchronization technologies in September, and that was the first sign that things were going to get wrapped up soon. Now that this UK suit has been settled in RIM’s favour, parallel litigations ina Canada, the U.S. and Italy could very well follow precedent. That’s one less thing for RIM to worry about, but there’s never a shortage of patent lawsuits flying around.
