BlackBerry wins patent suit

BlackBerry wins patent suit
On Monday, BlackBerry won a patent infringement lawsuit against the company. In federal court in Florida, the jury found that the Canadian handset manufacturer did not infringe on three patents owned by Dutch semiconductor company NXP BV. The suit dates backs to 2012 when BlackBerry was known as Research In Motion. NXP accused the Canadian based company of using its patented technology in BlackBerry handsets and on BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. The patents involved were related to the design and data transmission on the devices.

The suit started out involving six patents, but half of those were dropped. Had BlackBerry lost, the decision could have played havoc with the company's financials considering that NXP would have been entitled to triple damages had it won. The trial began on March 24th and the jury required just one day of deliberation before reaching a decision. 

While BlackBerry had no comment, NXP said it was disappointed and would start "investigating all options for appeal."
