Research in Motion, Prism settle patent dispute

VANCOUVER (Reuters) - Prism Technologies said on Tuesday it has reached a settlement with Research in Motion after it accused the BlackBerry maker of violating one of its patents.

Omaha, Nebraska-based Prism Technologies, whose one-page website says it does “Internet security technology management and licensing,” accused RIM of violating a patent having to do with authentication systems.

“As a company we have reached a settlement with Research in Motion and are pleased with the result,” A.J. Bahou, Prism’s vice president and chief intellectual property officer, told Reuters.

He declined to give any further details.

A representative of RIM could not immediately be reached for comment.

The maker of the popular BlackBerry smartphone has had several legal battles over patents in recent years.
