There's probably a clause preventing RIM from suing NTP ever again.

I'm glad to see this over -- I know that this time around both RIM and NTP has probably made it pretty ironclad and nitpicked every detail, considering the last settlement failed.

Although I feel RIM shouldn't have to give the funds to NTP, I think it's in everyone interests to stop being nervous about the BlackBerry service anymore -- now that it wouldn't shut down. They were scaring away so many U.S. customers to the point that 612 million will be more than paid back in extra revenue in the future!
