Visto: RIM's legal troubles have only just begun

If Research In Motion survives its patent dispute with NTP in the United States it will most likely have to repeat the saga with Visto, which claims to have an equally strong case against the BlackBerry maker.The long running battle between RIM and NTP seems to be close to conclusion with some analysts expecting the companies to reach a settlement to ensure a judge does not close down RIM's US operations.
