International Trade Commission Investigating Patent Claims Against RIM


Phoenix Wright dude j'accuse-ing

Read Simon’s post about the International Trade Commission stepping in to investigate and see if patent firm Prism Technologies is justified in its complaints against RIM for violating some of their authentication process patents.

Prism Technologies are a relatively unknown firm and it’s very unlikely anything will come of this lawsuit. Even if something does happen, it won’t be of the scale of the NTP case, and RIM is flush with cash at the moment. Analysts aren’t expecting the stock to budge and I doubt any of the executive have lost a minute of sleep over the issue.
