However, IMO, the argument is moot. The "workaround" likely will never see the light of day. NTP has lost the last round of patent challenges, and this is an excellent incentive for them to settle with RIM.
NTP hasn't lost anything. There are two different processes at work here, the legal proceedings and the patent review. Each has it's own appeal process. The fact that the patent officed intially rejected some of the patents doesn't have any bearing on the legal case, and the judge has stated as much.
