TORONTO Oct 31 Handset management software
firm Mformation Technologies said on Friday it has sued
BlackBerry maker Research In Motion RIM.TO RIMM.O, claiming
New Jersey-based Mformation claims RIM has infringed two of
its patents by making and selling the BlackBerry and the
BlackBerry's management software. It did not specify what
remedies it is seeking.
"After refusing to license Mformation's disclosed systems
and software, RIM modified its BlackBerry software to include
Mformation's patented systems and methods of remote
management," Mformation said.
