According to a recent journal published by the Controller General of Patents Designs and Trade Marks, the Canada-based company has sought patent for wireless systems providing a mechanism for resource sharing. Admitting RIM's application, the patent authorities have issued a public notice through its journal. As per the information available with the Patent Office website, in its abstract RIM claimed that in an embodiment, e-mail messages are routed between mobile wireless clients without first processing the message through an external e-mail domain identified in the mail. After getting patent in India, RIM would have exclusive right over the invention in the country. However, the company has not mentioned whether these features are related to Blackberry or not. The Canadian firm has also filed several other patent applications before the authorities seeking patent for its various devices and technologies, which includes a mobile communication device and wireless router queuing method and system.
