And there never will be. NTP sued and prevailed on valid, enforceable patents. Forget about what the USPTO does in the future, since it cannot and will not have any bearing on the final judgment of infringement. RIM infringed a patent, and then they bought their way out of the future-looking remedy (the injunction).

What??? There's a lawsuit??? They won't really turn off service will they? What will happen to me if they turn off my service? Will I be able to download ring tones? ...change themes? tether? Why didn't somebody tell me this before I bought my locked, password protected 7290 off of eBay?

Sorry guys. I just thought we all needed to hear that ONE MORE TIME.

Thanks for bringing the lawsuit to my attantion. I had an emergency meeting with our directors a few minutes ago and they asked that I shut down our company BES and order all 6000 handhelds back into the office of technology.

They said that due to this NEWS, we have decided to deploy campbell's solution co-owned by James Lever and Sons (string manufacturer).

Tomorrow we will begin distributing the replacement solution: campbells will provide 2/3 of the solution while James Lever and Sons will provide the other third, known as the "Connector.'

We just pray this all works out well and we don't all get tangled up with this deployment.


...sorry

I own the Intellectual Property rights for the string. My lawyers (Dewey, Cheatem and Howe) will be in touch.

Did anyone notice that one of the legal/rumor/stock/misc lawyer crap conversations is finally over (lawsuit old news) and now the new one... AT&T aka SBC is buying Bellsouth, getting their hands on the 60/40 split and renaming it to something else..

So we calm down after one and move on to the other...

In 5 years we will be with Sprintelatterizon... So doc, can I get a shot for that...??

No I dont think so, but I overheard rumors that in 5 years NTP will own the rights to that name and are already preparing suit. Hell another 600 million wouldnt hurt, besides in 5 yrs they probably would have spent this 600 million already.

They bought the bears? All of them? Now, even the act of being a bear, walking through life stealing honey, is a violation of an NTP patent??? What is this world coming to??? We need to keep the NTP guy away from Guess! We can't have him patenting blackberryforums.com!

NTP has a patent on the act of amending. The US government is in negotiations with them now. Looks like the pay out might triple the national debt. All of you who have ever edited a post on BlackberryForums.com had better watch out!
