Usually when you are talking about patent disputes in the wireless email world you are talking about the legal battle between NTP and BlackBerry maker Research in Motion. The most recent infringement lawsuit filed, however, deals with two of RIM’s competitors.
Visto Corporation today announced that it has filled a patent infringement lawsuit against one of RIM’s biggest competitors, Good Technology, makers of GoodLink.
In the claim, Visto alleges that various Good Technology products, including GoodLink, their push e-mail service, infringe on the patents that Visto has held for the past nine years. The suit seeks a permanent injunction against GoodLink and Good’s other infringing technology, which can power several mobile devices including the Palm Treo, HP’s iPAQ hw6500, and the Motorola MPx220, among others. The suit also seeks monetary damages.
