Today in my intro to business class the professor lectured about patents. She gave us an example of two companies; RIM and NTPO(?).
NTPO got the idea of technology of blackberries first and filed for patent and was approved. Then RIM came out with blackberry in the market while their patent was pending.
NTPO sued RIM and they settled in court by RIM paying NTPO 620 million dollars for the patent and rights to continue marketing blackberry.
I thought it was interesting. Was it a good move by RIM? Haha I think so.
