It was only a matter of time before this happened. Frankly, after the company won over $600M from RIM, I’m surprised this lawsuit didn’t come sooner.
NTP alleges taht the companies are infringing eight of NTP’s patents related to the delivery of e-mail over a wireless network. Each of the defendants in the case either makes cell phones or software used for delivering wireless e-mail. The tiny company, which battled RIM in court for five years over patent infringement, has been derided as a patent troll, trying to hold the wireless industry hostage.
