• BlackBerry Prevails In Court Case Against Mformation

    In more good legal news for BlackBerry, a years long court case, BlackBerry has won against a patent infringement case brought on by Mformation way back in 2008. Originally, Mformation had brought suit against RIM for violation of remote device management patents. Mformation won that suit and was awarded $147 million in damages .

    RIM(BlackBerry) appealed and the ruling in favor of Mformation was vacated. Mformation then appealed the verdict that vacated the win for RIM back in 2012. Finally this whole sordid affair is over as of Friday August 22nd.

    Judge Edward Chen ruled in favor of BlackBerry and denied Mformation's motion. In his ruling, Judge Chen stated, "substantial evidence" did not support a judgment of infringement. In a statement from BlackBerry, a spokesperson commented:

    [Friday's] verdict follows a series of successful litigation victories, underscoring BlackBerry's continued effort to fight against meritless claims. We look forward to a time when technology companies will no longer be forced to spend huge amounts of time and money defending frivolous patent cases such as these, and instead invest their resources to drive innovation.
    No comment was released by Mformation.
