BlackBerry recently released a report which stated that the company has won a patent infringement case brought by NXP BV. The latter had accused the Canadian smartphone company of infringing its patents. This included some of the features on the PlayBook and other BlackBerry devices. However, the case ended with the jury ruling in favor of BlackBerry.
This is what Steve Zipperstein, Chief Legal Officer, has to say:
“We are pleased with the jury’s verdict. While this is a victory for BlackBerry, we look forward to a time when technology companies will no longer be forced to spend huge amounts of time and money defending frivolous patent cases such as these, and instead invest their resources to drive innovation. Until then, we will vigorously defend our intellectual property rights and contest all meritless claims.”
