blackberry brings second suit

Summary: Blackberry is suing Typo a second time for product infringement.

Blackberry is suing Typo again. After their success in 2007, when they took on Ryan Seacrest’s Typo, they are once again saying that their competitor “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.”

They are not simply being uptight about a competitor lifting their stylistic nuances, but believe Typo isn’t even designing their own product. A judge agreed and ordered them to pay $860,000 in sanctions for violating the injunction against shipping their products outside the U.S.

It seems Typo2 is not faring much better.

“Just as they did with the Typo Keyboard, Defendants have again copied numerous proprietary BlackBerry designs and patents in the Typo2 Keyboard,” the new suit states. “The Typo2 Keyboard still blatantly copies BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard trade dress designs that have been embodied in numerous BlackBerry smartphones from the 2007 BlackBerry 8800 to the current Q10 and Classic models. The Typo2 Keyboard also infringes numerous BlackBerry utility patents related to BlackBerry’s proprietary keyboard design, backlighting and typing automation technologies.”

They are seeking various damages, and their lawyers from Quinn Emanuel explain they wish to “put an end to Defendant’s pattern and practice of unlawful conduct.”

This second suit, filed Monday in California federal court, has inspired no comments from Typo.
