Back in 2008, a MDM company called Mformation Technologies sued BlackBerry claiming infringement on a patent owned by them for a process for remotely managing devices over a wireless network. And BlackBerry lost. In 2012 a California court awarded Mformation Technologies a judgment in the amount of $147.2 million.
And BlackBerry appealed.
And the U.S. appeals court ruled Friday that BlackBerry did not infringe on any patents. A penny saved is a penny earned. And BlackBerry just saved $147.2 million.
