That’s it for Typo. It seems that BlackBerry was able to win an injunction over the sales of the Typo keyboard. If you’ve been closely following BlackBerry news, then you’d know that Typo produced a keyboard for iPhone that looks identical to the Canadian smartphone company’s iconic QWERTY keyboard. The said item is now facing a sales ban.
Here’s the official statement from Bloomberg:
U.S. District Judge William Orrick in San Francisco said in a ruling today that BlackBerry is likely to prevail on its infringement claims and that Typo hasn’t made a strong challenge to the validity of the smartphone maker’s patents. Orrick also dismissed Typo’s concern that a temporary sales ban may put the company out of business.
Although the injunction isn’t permanent, the fact that this happened doesn’t look good for Typo.
Who’s side are you on?
