Patent lawsuit[edit]

Mformation sued Research In Motion (RIM) in 2008, accusing it of infringement of two patents. In July 2012, jurors in federal court in San Francisco determined that RIM's software, which lets companies manage workers’ BlackBerry devices remotely, infringed Mformation’s patents. RIM was found liable for $147.2 million in damages[3] but judge overturned the ruling.[4]
