  • BlackBerry Wins Patent Infringement Case Brought On By NXP


    Back in 2012 NXP BV, a company from the Netherlands, brought forth a lawsuit accusing BlackBerry of infringing on NXP's patents. The original complaint had said that BlackBerry had taken ideas from six of NXP's data transmission and design patents and using them in the PlayBook and handheld device designs. NXP had later dropped three of those complaints.

    In a Federal court ruling, a jury has ruled in favor of BlackBerry and dismissed both main assertions by NXP on the theft of their patents. Another good news legal victory for BlackBerry in less than a week.

    Press Release

    Waterloo, ON – BlackBerry® Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB), a world leader in mobile communications, today announced that a federal jury ruled in favor of BlackBerry in a patent infringement case brought by NXP BV in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division. The verdict was a sweeping victory for BlackBerry, as the jury found both that BlackBerry did not infringe NXP’s patents, and that the patents NXP asserted against BlackBerry are invalid.

    “We are pleased with the jury’s verdict,” said Steve Zipperstein, Chief Legal Officer at BlackBerry. “While this is a victory for BlackBerry, 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. Until then, we will vigorously defend our intellectual property rights and contest all meritless claims.”
