BlackBerry Limited (BBRY, BB.TO) announced that a federal jury ruled in favor of the company in a patent infringement case brought by Mobile Telecommunications LLC in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. The company said the jury found that BlackBerry did not infringe the MTel patent at issue. The patent in-suit covered a two-way communication system for communication between a system network and a mobile unit.
MTel originally claimed BlackBerry infringed five patents. Prior to trial, the Court found that two of the patents were directed to non-patentable subject matter, that BlackBerry did not infringe one of the patents, and that one of the patents was indefinite.
