Jerks, then again, one of the biggest users of the blackberries is the US federal government so we'll see. I'm sure the other PDA/Phone companies are in on this too, Blackberries dominate the Trios and whatnot.

Why would they? Because, from an economic standpoint Canada is the 51st state.

Patent laws are inherantly unfair and are often subject to people who have the most funds. Disney with Mickey Mouse is one example; that patent was supposed to expire decades ago. Just look at the fact that the owners of some patents haven't done anything with it, alot of patents are designed exclusively to create a kind of extortion as patents can be made even if the persons didn't design the technology themselves. There was a case a few years back where some guy patented the idea of using credit cards over the internet and then went out out and started suing small start up internet buisness by sending threatening letters that they pay 10,000 US dollars or he would litigate (sue) and this technology was already around long before he patented it and smaller companies can't always afford all the hassles of courts and attorny fees so they would pay the 10 grand just to be left alone. This is not always the case and some people have a legitamate right to patent things but the laws on patents definately need major reforms.
