Supreme Court rejects BlackBerry patent appeal

MSNBC reports Supreme Court rejects BlackBerry patent appeal.

The question is: what now? Many users are concerned about a shudown of the service.

Further down in the story:
Attorney Herbert L. Fenster, who represents RIM, said the company is fighting the injunction. But he said an injunction would not end BlackBerry use among at least 1 million of its 3 million users in the United States.

Fenster said he believes federal law prohibits U.S. District Judge James R. Spencer from cutting off BlackBerry service to federal, state and local government users and others who rely on the devices to communicate during a public emergency.
