The patent trolls are in full force this year. Next one up to bat is Graphics Properties Holdings Inc., formerly known as Silicon Graphics Inc. They allege that Research In Motion is infringing a patent through their sale of mobile phones and other electronic devices.
The patent relates to a computer graphics process that turns text and images into pixels to be displayed on screens. According to the lawsuit, the infringing BlackBerry device is the Torch. However, it does not specify which Torch models.
Graphics Properties said that unless the alleged infringements are halted, it will suffer irreparable harm. The lawsuits seek to stop the sale of infringing products and also seek reasonable royalties and other damages. The lawsuit against Research in Motion Ltd was filed in the U.S. District Court in Wilmington, Delaware.
