Court Sides with BlackBerry, Agrees to Typo Ban

A judge agreed with BlackBerry's position that Typo, the maker of a keyboard accessory for the iPhone, is likely infringing on BlackBerry's patents. The case, which sells for $99, uses Bluetooth to communicate with the iPhone, and provides a physical QWERTY keyboard that resembles those of BlackBerry phones for typing. U.S. District Judge William Orrick in San Francisco said BlackBerry's arguments warranted placing a preliminary injunction on sales of the Typo pending a full trial. BlackBerry said it "is pleased that its motion for a preliminary injunction against Typo Products was granted. This ruling will help prevent further injury to BlackBerry from Typo's blatant theft of our patented keyboard technology." Typo said it was disappointed with the injunction and will file an appeal.
