snydeq writes "Texas-based Saxon Innovations has filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission to bar six companies — including Research in Motion, Palm, and Nokia — from importing handheld devices into the U.S. At issue are three patents that Saxon purchased in July 2007, a patent for keypad monitor with keypad activity-based activation; a patent for an apparatus and method for disabling interrupt marks in processors or the like; and a patent for a device and method for interprocessor communication by using mailboxes owned by processor devices. Saxon, with five employees, purchased about 180 U.S. patents formerly owned by Advanced Micro Devices or Legerity in 2007, according to its ITC complaint."
