    RIM sued over visual voicemail patent, seeks indemnification from App World

    Advertisement



    Over the past several years Klausner Technologies, Inc. has been making headlines by suing large mobile companies, notably Apple and RIM, over alleged visual voicemail patent infringement on iPhone and BlackBerry devices. The company was founded by Judah Klausner — whose name sits atop the first PDA patent from 1978 (you can read more about him here). In 2009, Klausner Technologies named RIM in a lawsuit claiming ownership of several visual voicemail patents that RIM has filed and is now, obviously, making money from. Here is where the story takes a turn for the obscure…

    This is a horrible article not based on the facts as presented in the article. The writer should be embarrassed by the misrepresentation being made about what RIM is doing. The only value to reading this article is to see how someone can write something, post it on the internet, and people will believe it's true.

    The letter from RIM is merely an advisement to the app vendor that they COULD also be named by Klausner in the lawsuit for the infringement. It goes on to say that if they are, they have agreed previously to hold RIM harmless and can't sue RIM in any way to recoup the cost of the suit.

    Agreed. It does seem like the article was trying to make Rim look bad. I'll be more careful with my news reports :-(

    Still news, but I blame the author of the report for trying to make it look like RIM was pushing it off on the developer. I am curious to see where this goes however. RIM seems to be getting sucker punched with the lawsuits lately.

    How is the Apple side of this doing? Sounds like he's trying to get some cash from Rim etc
