BlackBerry maker RIM ordered to pay $147.2 million in patent lawsuit
Washington, July 15 (ANI): BlackBerry maker Research in Motion has been ordered by a California jury to pay 147.2 million dollars in damages for infringing on a patent for remote management of wireless devices, RIM said.
"RIM is disappointed by the outcome and is evaluating all legal options," News 24 quoted the Canadian company as saying.
Edison, New Jersey-based software firm Mformation sued RIM in 2008 in US District Court in San Francisco, claiming it had disclosed details of its technology to RIM during licensing discussions.
After choosing not to buy a license, RIM modified its software to include Mformation's patented systems allowing companies to manage workers' mobile devices from an enterprise server, Mformation said in its complaint.
RIM denied any wrongdoing and said the patents were invalid.
"RIM has worked hard for many years to independently develop its leading-edge BlackBerry technology and industry-leading intellectual property portfolio, and RIM does not believe that the Mformation patent in question is valid," it said.
In its verdict, the jury directed RIM to pay an eight-dollar royalty for every mobile device in the United States connected to a BlackBerry enterprise server. (ANI)
