The NTP Story

The Globe and Mail has a long and interesting article today about NTP, the company that’s in the process of kicking RIM’s tail in court. RIM is the maker of everyone’s favorite email gadget, the Blackberry.

I guess the public relations campaign mentioned in the article worked, because until today I had the impression that NTP was merely a patent troll, trying to extract some easy money from RIM.

This article doesn’t necessarily make me change my mind about the case, but it does remind me that there are two sides to the story.

It’s always next to impossible to get the real story based on what you read or hear on the news. People tell reporters carefully crafted versions of the facts. But it sounds like there may be a little more to this lawsuit than I thought.
