RIM Sued By Firm Over BBX Trademark
Oct 20, 2011, 2:59 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Research In Motion has been hit with a lawsuit from a company based in New Mexico that claims to have trademarked the BBX name. The company is called Basis International, and it uses the name "BBx" for a software language, database, and toolset that it created. "Our patent attorney has sent them a cease and desist letter, invoking the U.S. trademark act ... requesting a response by October 31," Basis CEO Nico Spence said to Reuters. "Failing that, we'll take the next logical legal step." RIM announced earlier this week that it plans to transition its BlackBerry and PlayBook devices to a new platform called BBX (built on portions of its BlackBerry OS and QNX). RIM doesn't believe a conflict exists in the names. In a statement sent to Reuters, RIM said, "RIM has not yet received a copy of the legal complaint described in Basis International's press release, but we do not believe the marks are confusing, particularly since our respective companies are in different lines of business."
