The injunction is a non-issue for users as far as I can tell. I wish this would be made more clear by RIM in the media, but this is my understanding:

- Modified non-infringing software is being made as a contingency in case of getting shut down.
- They would settle before letting their US market get shut down.

The only reason this procedure is taking so long is that RIM is fighting tooth and nail to prevent having to pay money to NTP. They're not going down without a fight, basically.
