This is plug for RIM and for one of my friends who works there. Maybe he'd like to post a comment?
Laura and I were talking about it the other night. That a company that doesn't even use the patent it's suing for can hold another company that has millions of users of systems based on this patent (untrue, but anyway) is criminal. That a court will help a company accomplish this is criminally negligent.
So much for my insightful analysis.
