RIM losing BBX case

Written by Nick Farell

Backtracks on trademark

Software company Basis has been granted a temporary restraining order against Research in Motion from using Basis' BBX trademark.

The court decision bars RIM from using the BBX trademark which should have been bad news for RIM. However it seems that RIM appeared to backtrack on using the trademark and was now calling its next generation mobile platform Blackberry 10.

BBX, or Blackberry 10, or what ever else you want to call it, is supposed to be helping RIM revive its BlackBerry franchise. However even before it was installed, the software hit problems.

Albuquerque-based Basis International claims the "BBX" name is protected by trademarks it holds and had earlier threatened to take legal action against RIM unless it stopped using it.

RIM apparently had not been playing ball and appeared ready to go to court over the matter. Basis said RIM had refused requests to stop using the moniker at the DevCon conference, which resulted in the company filing for the temporary restraining order.

It is not clear if RIM has given up completely.
