When in doubt, sue RIM

Mformation Technologies Inc., a maker of mobile device management software, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Research In Motion Limited and its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, Research In Motion Corporation.

According to a news release, Research In Motion and its subsidiary have allegedly infringed on two of Mformation’s U.S. patents by making, using, and selling RIM’s Blackberry devices, and their management software. Blackberrys and associated software “employ innovative systems and methods of remote device management invented by Mformation, and covered by Mformation’s asserted patents: U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,970,917 and 7,343,408, ” the Eidson, N.J., company alleges.
