I agree, and I think they are beginning to realize that they "maybe" made a mistake not taking the initial offer and moving on.

"In a court filing last week, NTP said it was willing to resolve the matter if RIM were to pay it the original 5.7 percent royalty fee."

Sounds to me like NTP is gonna be up Sh*t creek without a paddle after this is done with. For one, Im glad. I am not in favor of software patents in general, but paper holders, "squatters," are the least desireable in the entire process if you ask me.

IMO.
