"Good news" for Blackberry owners
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, January 24, 2006

OK, I'm obviously being sarcastic:
The Supreme Court yesterday rejected a petition from BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd. for a rehearing of its patent-infringement case, setting the stage for a possible court-ordered shutdown of most of its 4 million e-mail devices in the United States.
Developing. But if your crackberry gives a long, loud squeal today and then goes blank, you'll know why.

I read from somewhere this morning (can’t find it again) that Government and emergency workers will be exempt until RIM finds something else, so that will elleviate the problem hopefully for a little while.

Assuming RIM is shut down on this, how are the cell phone companies going to tackle this? Free treo 650 for me?!?!???

I can tell you exactly how it would work if the courts did this: Congress would quickly and brutally eviscerate the entire USPTO and completely rework the idea of Intellectual Property. The pressure on them to do so would be enormous, and I don’t see Congress as being some sort of pillar of strength against the teeming masses right now.

I’m pretty sure the USPTO sees it the same way, since they are by all appearances moving full speed ahead to invalidate the patents that would lead to this injunction.
