In what might be the battle of the century, RIM’s stepped up, rolled up their sleeves, and is ready to lay some sort of smack down on Samsung, maker of the BlackJack. Engadget reports that our good pals over at Research in Motion have sued Samsung for copyright infringement in US Federal Court in Los Angeles – and for what? It’s all in the name.
“Oh, RIM, we understand that you want to protect your trademark over the BlackBerry name. But do you really, honestly, believe that just because another smartphone has the name “Black” in it, that throngs of people will rush out to buy the BlackJack when they meant to buy the BlackBerry? Or is this just a ploy to squeeze some money out of Samsung when you two finally settle this dispute?”
As always, we’ve got RIM’s back, but this might just be pushing it a little tiny bit. Thoughts, folks?
