    Default Round 2: BlackBerry Blasts Ryan Seacrest's iPhone Keyboard... Again


    According to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, BlackBerry isn't thrilled that Ryan Seacrest's updated Typo (an iPhone-centric mobile keyboard) is still a lot like the first, which purportedly ripped off BlackBerry's famous keyboard design.

    So, once again, BlackBerry is suing Typo, arguing in a California federal court that its famous mobile keyboard designs are being "slavishly copied...down to the smallest detail, including the layout of the keyboard itself, the shapes of the keys, and the surface sculpting of the keys."

    It should be noted, however, that Seacrest's Typo entered a second phase of production because the original Typo iPhone keyboard was banned by a federal judge. At that time, BlackBerry said Typo had achieved nothing other than to "blatantly" copy BlackBerry's innovative keyboard.

    This time around, BlackBerry says little has changed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, lawyers for BlackBerry at Quinn Emanuel say its latest legal measures are designed "to put an end to Defendants' pattern and practice of unlawful conduct."

    You'd think Blackberry would be happy someone still wanted to use their keyboard, or make this themselves instead of trying to stop Typo from making it.

    Once one company copies it, whats to stop another from copying it. Then when you go to court and fight for your IP, your company will have a hell of a fight if you let other companies copy you and not attack them. Thats just my guess. And not to mention, why let someone else make money off of you when you did all the work. As people do say, copying is the nicest form of flattery just not when it hurts your pockets.
