BlackBerry: Inspiring Patent Reform?

We've posited before that a complete shutdown of the BlackBerry network through an injunction at the request of a troll whose 5 patents have all been found [pre-finally] invalid would be an incredible catalyst for patent reform, as millions of BlackBerry users march on Washington (so to speak). Unfortunately, RIM blinked, NTP got their extortion money, and we'll never know for certain if Judge Spencer really would have had the guts to issue such an injunction.

Perhaps some change will come of this experience after all, the Financial Times writes.
