BlackBerry Service Might Die in US

Research in Motion (RIM), the manufacturer for the BlackBerry, appealed a ruling that they had violated seven patents from a company called NTP. RIM tried to appeal this decision, but the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington rejected their request. NTP "had been granted an injunction banning the sale of BlackBerry devices in the United States and forcing Research in Motion to stop providing e-mail services to all American customers except government account holders." RIM is asking the Supreme Court for a review of the case. [from The New York Times]
