Description: Mformation Technologies, Inc. sued Research In Motion, Ltd. (RIM) on a patent infringement theory claiming that Research In Motion failed to pay an $8 per unit royalty on every BlackBerry in the United States to use software developed by Mformation.

Mformation sued RIM in 2008, bringing claims on a patent for a process that remotely manages a wireless device over a wireless network, a court filing says. According to its web site, Mformation helps corporations manage their smartphone inventory. The company also says it helps telecoms operators, such as AT&T and Sprint, with remote fixes and upgrades for users' gadgets.

RIM claimed that the patent claims were invalid.

Outcome: Plaintiff's verdict for $147.2 million.
