Klausner Technologies Files Patent Lawsuits Against Motorola (MOT) And RIM (RIMM)

Klausner Technologies which owns 25 patents some part of which it claims cover the basic visual voicemail feature in which users can selectively view and listen to their voice messages via their mobile phones or computers is suing Motorola (NYSE:MOT) and RIM (NASDAQ:RIMM) for infringement.

The lawsuit is based on the recent introduction of Motorola’s new “CLIQ” mobile phone which Klausner Technologies claims violates it visual voicemail patented technology. The action against RIM is based technology used in its new 3G “BlackBerry Bold 9700” mobile phones.

The Klausner actions look like nuisance lawsuits brought by a company that did not get the royalties that it wanted for its “technology”. Investors have shrugged off the news. Shares in RIM are up 1% to $6.25 and shares in Motorola are up 1.2% to $8.38.
