Palm Targeted by NTP in Patent Lawsuit

NTP Inc., the private patent-wielding firm that engaged in protracted litigation and angry taunts with Research in Motion (RIM), now has trained its litigious sights on Palm Inc.

Today NTP, which eventually obtained a $612.5-million settlement from RIM, filed a lawsuit against Palm, seeking injunctive relief to prevent the manufacturer of handheld devices and smartphones "from continuing to infringe on NTP’s patents directly and indirectly." NTP also is seeking unspecified monetary damages.

If Palm is wise, it will not follow the needlessly costly trail blazed by RIM, which had several opportunities to resolve the legal dispute with NPD for far less money than it ultimately paid.
