    RIM Wins Patent Law Suit Filed By Motorola In British Courts


    Well hey look at this, some good news regarding these patent law suits RIM keeps finding themselves in. As we said last night on the BlackberryOS Web Show, Motorola claims RIM is infringing on several of their patents in areas such as Wi-Fi access and power management. The ruling handed out by the British court states that RIM did not infringe on one of Motorola's patents for email. The infringements stem from a disagreement Motorola has saying that RIM has continued to use patents longer than the agreed time period of 2003 to 2007. The ruling in the British court does not affect the law suits Motorola has in the U.S. However, the ruling will most likely have an impact with ITC, which Motorola has asked to investigate the alleged patent infringements. This is a nice small victory for RIM who has seen their fair share of patent law suits lately.

    This is what happens in a depressed economy (worldwide, no less). A company that, in good times, would ignore or extend license to another company decides it is easier to make money by lawsuit. Fact is; until the droids came out, Motorola was not really producing any devices that were popular (unless you count the RAZR series, which has had its own issues and reputation).
    if these companies could try to get along and maybe work in tandem with one another, perhaps we'd have some outstanding devices by now, alas, we have to wait until they get over themselves and stop bickering.
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?
