BlackBerry news: USPTO rejects one of NTP's claims

Rick Georges, whose blog is a must-read for those keeping tabs on BlackBerry news, has the latest on the USPTO's final rejection of one of NTP's patent claims against device maker RIM. Linking to a story from CNET, Georges writes:

"One down, four to go. The USPTO rejected one of the five patents NTP claims have been violated by RIM in its BlackBerry devices. This final rejection will be met by years of appeals by NTP. Unfortunately for RIM, the hearing that could result in an injunction occurs tomorrow, and the decision could come early next week. In the event an injunction issues, RIM, of course, will play the 'work-around software' hand ..."

Read on to get his take on how this will all play out.
