Just two days into the new year, and already RIM is headed back into the courtroom – this time in an intense battle with Roy G. Biv. Similar to the Samsung BlackJack lawsuit, this one is also over the term “black”, reports Brighthand. This suit comes at the heels of Mr. Biv’s announcement that he will be launching his own smartphone with a Windows Mobile OS.
‘…RIM’s frivolity shows no bounds. Shortly after the suit involving Mr. Biv, RIM filed against Lewis Black, Black Sabbath, Black Eyed Peas, black holes, and Johnnie Walker Black Label. It’s unlikely the train will stop there as lead internal counsel for RIM said, “You liberal media types vilify big business all the time. We’re just protecting our brand. Expect more lawsuits to come as we protect our berry patent. Strawberry Shortcake has been riding our coattails for years.”‘
