Supreme Court rejects RIM appeal

In the latest legal squabble between Research in Motion and NTP, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear RIM's BlackBerry patent dispute with NTP. The high court's refusal means that the trial judge in the case could stop BlackBerry sales in the U.S, where the company makes more than half of its revenue. The court was asked to decide whether RIM could be held liable for patent infringement when its main relay station for email and data transmission is located in Waterloo, Ontario, outside U.S. borders.
