RIM Sues Samsung

Samsung BlackJack

In my second “I Told You So” post of the week, we have Blackberry maker Research-In-Motion (RIM) suing Samsung over their new “BlackJack” device. The first time I saw the commercial on TV, I looked at Bonnie and said “well there is a lawsuit waiting to happen” and sure enough, here we are.

BlackBerry maker Research in Motion filed suit against Samsung in U.S. District Court on Friday, claiming the South Korean electronics manufacturer’s choice of the “BlackJack” name is too close to that of its popular BlackBerry device. In the lawsuit, RIM is seeking an injunction that would prevent the sale of the phone, as well as to force Samsung to stop using the name.
