Interesting UK case:
http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Patents/2009/418.html

"The Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) was intended to
increase the security of mobile phone communications from unauthorised
tracking of users and tapping of their conversations. Law enforcement
authorities may nevertheless wish to break through the security thus
provided in order to track the movement of telephones and their owners.
This case is about a patent for a method of breaking through the GSM
security so that the identification numbers of a mobile telephone and
its user can be obtained."

.."The Patent is valid and is infringed by the DX918. Mr Timson is
jointly liable with the CellXion companies. "
