Prism Technologies does internet security technology management and licensing and accused RIM of violating a patent having to do with authentication systems. Prism has said that they have reached an agreement with RIM and the dispute is settled. “As a company we have reached a settlement with Research in Motion and are pleased with the result,” A.J. Bahou, Prism’s vice president and chief intellectual property officer, told Reuters. It’s not clear whether Prism has a valid claim to these patents or they’re just another patent troll. RIM is a huge company and everyone wants a piece of the pie.
