Back in December of last year Omaha-based Prism Technologies filed a dispute with the International Trade Commission (ITC) against RIM that they infringed one of its patents and requested them to block shipments of BlackBerry devices, desktop software and servers. Prism stated that the patent in question is number 288 and it “covers an innovative way of controlling access to protected electronically stored data and information requested by a device using an Internet Protocol network”

Today it’s been announced that they have settled the case and although no financial terms were discussed a “license and settlement agreement” has been reached.
