Yawn... There Goes Another NTP Patent (Yes, Another One)
from the oops-they-did-it-again dept
The US Patent Office today issued yet another non-final rejection of an NTP patent, meaning all five at the center of its legal battle with Research In Motion have been given non-final rejections. Of course, even though the Patent Office has indicated it will eventually finally reject all of NTP's patents, the judge in the case is happy to play along with NTP's schedule rather than wait for the patents to be rejected. It's been said before, but bears repeating: to rule in the case before the Patent Office acts seems awfully premature.
