Even though Ontario, CA based Research in Motion has already lost their patent infringement case with Virginia based holding company NTP, they have no plans to settle. In 2001 NTP claimed that RIM infringed upon several of their patents around push email technology and eventually was awarded 54$ million in damages and an injunction preventing RIM from selling there BlackBerry Handhelds and Services in the United States. That injunction was stayed and a higher court actually overturned the $54 million in damages but did uphold that RIM infringed upon 11 of 16 patents held by NTP.

Henry Bunsow, an attorney representing Research in Motion, said the company would not settle out of court and is prepared to argue before the U.S. high court.
