Patent Office “Heads Up” on Decision re. RIM/NTP Patents December 21, 2005

U.S. Patent Office Likely to Back BlackBerry Maker – New York Times

The technology patents at the heart of an infringement lawsuit by NTP against Research In Motion, the maker of the BlackBerry wireless e-mail device, are likely to be struck down by the United States patent office, both companies said on Monday, a move that would be a setback for NTP.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office took the unusual step of notifying the companies that it expected to reject the five patents held by NTP in its final rulings.

The office has issued preliminary rejections of all five wireless e-mail patents in the past. The final rulings may come by mid-February, earlier than expected.

“The patent owner’s arguments are deemed nonpersuasive,” said the patent office document, which was received last week but dated Nov. 30. “The next office action is expected to be a final rejection of all current claims.”

Good news for Blackberry users. Of course, we need to keep an eye on what happens in the lawsuit separately, but it’s pretty hard to say “they infringed our patents”, if those patents are ruled invalid by the USPTO…

Another Patent Rejected in the RIM/NTP Battle December 16, 2005

From Blackberry Cool:

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has rejected a second NTP Inc. patent in what it described as a non-final action. The patent, 5,625,670, is one of five at the center of the long-running patent dispute between NTP and Research In Motion Ltd., maker of the BlackBerry wireless handheld device. It’s the second time in a matter of weeks that the PTO has issued a “non-final? rejection of an NTP patent.

Another step in the right direction.
