Last week RIM announced that its new BlackBerry platform would be called BBX, there was one thing that RIM forgot to check before it announced BBX, if anyone else was using the BBX trademark.
The BBX trademark is owned by BASIS International, who announced last week that they were taking legal advice on what to do about RIM’s new BBX name for their platform.
Now BASIS International has filed a complaint in the Albuquerque Federal Court against RIM, after the company has not had a response from RIM to a ‘cease and desist’ letter than was sent to RIM.
BASIS International is claiming that it has used the BBX trademark in the US and other countries for decades, and by RIM using the name it is confusing the companies customers.
