After reading this article RIM I just cannot belive the nerve of a US company, trying to claim that their pantents are also within Canada. But if you read the whole article you find out that the pantents are only within the US. Since RIM is Canadian their head office is Canadian, and their Relay Server is located within Canada, the bases for the whole system runs within Canada. How can they claim that since the service is used mostly with the US that the pantents apply. The only portion of the system that is being used within the US is the handhelds units which are sold by RIM to third party companies.
My Final Words
Piss Off! If you dont like dont use it.
