Saxon files lawsuit against RIM for alleged patent infringement


The famous line here is “if you can’t innovate, litigate.” Saxon, a tiny company of only 5 employees, bought a series of patents back in 2007 from AMD. These patents are the grounds for their current lawsuit against RIM and a host of other device manufacturers. The company is trying to shut down US imports until they are compensated for the alleged breach of patents.

According to InfoWorld these patents are:

* A keypad monitor patent was granted in August 1993
* Interrupt marks patent was granted in June 1996
* Mailbox patent was granted in March 1997
