BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY), the Canadian maker of smart-phones, tablets, and also well-known throughout the world as a provider of highly reliable and secure software for industrial applications and Mobile Device Management (MDM), has filed a lawsuit against Ryan Seacrest’s Typo for the second time. The Hollywood Reporter article discussed the details on why and what Blackberry has to say about the lawsuit. According to BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY), the second version of Ryan Seacrest’s Typo is very much like the first one.
“Just as they did with the Typo Keyboard, Defendants have again copied numerous proprietary BlackBerry designs and patents in the Typo2 Keyboard,” states the complaint.
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) filed the complaint on Monday in California in federal court against the Typo 2 Keyboard stating that they have copied Blackberry’s own designs down to the smallest detail, which includes the layout of the keyboard, the shapes of the keys, and the surface sculpting of the keys. BlackBerry Ltd sued Ryan Seacrest’s Typo earlier in 2014 as well.
Ryan Seacrest, the American Idol host, co-founded the tech startup, which works on finding ways to make it easier for people to type on their iPhone. The company makes an iPhone case that includes a BlackBerry-style keyboard “Typo Keyboard”. This Bluetooth enabled accessory was made for iPhone-5 and iPhone-5S, for those people who do not like to type on touch screens.
According to BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY), the Typo2 Keyboard still copies BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard designs used in its various smartphones from the 2007 “BlackBerry 8800” to the current “Q10” and Classic models. The Typo2 Keyboard breaches not only many BlackBerry utility patents related to BlackBerry’s proprietary keyboard design but also the back-lighting and typing automation technologies. BlackBerry Ltd has emphasized in its complaint that the Typo has willfully copied its designs.
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s software and hardware products are used worldwide by various government agencies, and by car makers and industrial plants throughout the world. It’s famous because of its security and reliability. BlackBerry Ltd has already won an injunction halting sales of the original Typo case, in which BlackBerry Ltd was awarded $860,000 in damages, but this time BlackBerry Ltd is looking to do more damage to the Typo2. Seeking every kind of damage, including another injunction, BlackBerry Ltd via its lawyers says it aims “to put an end to Defendants’ pattern and practice of unlawful conduct”, which means BlackBerry Ltd is up to something big and will put the problem to an end once and for all.
