Experts Divided On a Shutdown

On ZDNet’s IP Telephony, VoIP, Broadband blog, Russell Shaw asks eight experts if there will be an injunction issued against RIM. Most think there will not, but in a follow-up postings Shaw quotes from Troy Wolverton of who thinks there will be an injunction issued while Todd Kort, a senior analyst at Gartner argues against a shutdown.

Key points for a shutdown:

  • The sides will not settle out of court.
  • An injunction is standard practice and the Judge is impatient with RIM’s arguments.
  • RIM’s response to an injunction will be its workaround.
  • If used, the success of the workaround in keeping BlackBerry email service working will determine RIM’s future actions.
