Back in October RIM announced that their new software platform would be called BlackBerry BBX, unfortunately for RIM the BBX trademark was already owned by Basis International, who used the trademark for their own software platform.
Basis International decided to take RIM to court for using their trademark, and filed a court case against RIM back in October, and now it would appear that RIM won’t be able to use the BBX name for their platform.
According to a recent report by the Guardian, Basis International has been granted an injunction against RIM, which will stop RIM using the BBX name for their new software, RIM has apparently decided to rename BlackBerry BBX as BlackBerry 10.
Things really aren’t going well for RIM at the moment, with the company recently writing off hundreds of millions of dollars on their less than popular BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
