London Court Sides With RIM On Motorola Patent Issue
on 4 Feb 2010 08:55 am
At least one court has sided with Research In Motion in regards to Motorolas patent claims. As reported by The Calgary Herald, the High Court Justice in London, England invalidated Motorolas patent related to email gateway systems and went so far as to say even if it had been valid it hadn't been infringed by two communications systems used by Research In Motion.
Motorola had requested that the ITC look into the actions of Research In Motion and their use of Motorola patents but with the London court ruling, the chances of the ITC weighing in now have just gotten a little slimmer. Invalidating one of the patents called out in the claims to the ITC Motorola has no choice but to pull that patent from their paperwork and subsequent claim to the ITC.
