Blackberry fires up its Lawyers
From the outset of 2014 we all knew this could be the year that Blackberry make their comeback or, potentially, fall out of the market all together. However it seems that the companies first call of business is to fire up its lawyers in a copyright infringement lawsuit.
Filed today the team at Blackberry are claiming that Typo, a company that has designed a new keyboard interface skin for the iPhone, has “.. blatantly copied Blackberry’s keyboard design..”.
The company Typo, co founded by media personality Ryan Seacrest, has developed a rather stunning piece of kit with the typo. The case design allows the tactile use of a keyboard which overlays the iPhone home button, without covering up too much of the UI.
You have to admit the similarities are quite apparent. You could understand why Blackberry have made the decision to proceed with the lawsuit. What do you reckon?
