NTP's Victory Over RIM Causes Jitters to its Stock 

In a recent lower court ruling, the judge has asked RIM to pay NTP a sum of $53.7 million US as damages for infringing on five patents. It also issued an injunction against RIM to stop selling Blackberry units in North America. However, the judge gave partial relief to RIM by allowing it to appeal the decision to the higher courts. 

RIM will probably be willing to settle for royalty fee if t is fair. It has been setting aside funds to pay for the royalty fee. 

For more information: This legal battle is causing RIM unnecessary public relations harm. Once a pristine company with a unique product (which it, still. is), RIM gets more press about its legal problems than about its products and services. Prospects for RIM winning are considered dim.
