NTP Wins Court Ruling on 7 Patents From Apple, AT&T Cases

Quote: (T), Yahoo! Inc. and T-Mobile USA Inc. Those cases had been on hold pending NTP’s appeal of the patent office findings. The patents relate to a way to send information, such as e- mail, through a radio frequency wireless network. The Federal Circuit ruled that the patent office was “unreasonably broad” in its definition of “electronic mail message.” “Because this construction is relevant to many of the bases for rejection, we remand for further proceedings,” the three-judge panel ruled in the decision covering seven patents. RIM Settlement In a separate ruling on the eighth patent, the court upheld the patent office’s rejection of validity, saying the patent wasn’t different enough from one issued to RIM co-Chairman and co-Chief Executive Officer Michael Lazaridis. Donald Stout, co-founder of closely held NTP, said he had no comment on the ruling. NTP sued RIM in 2001 and won a trial that could have resulted in a shutdown of the BlackBerry system in the U.S. After the 2006 settlement, NTP filed more than a dozen infringement lawsuits in federal court in Norfolk, Virginia.
