Blackberry maker faulted for copyright infringement

RIM hopes to avoid legal action with the trademarked software company

Blackberry can’t seem to catch a break after its upsetting incident with last week’s international service problem. Research in Motion (RIM), Blackberry’s telecommunication provider, announced at a San Francisco conference this week that it plans to run a new operating system called BBX on its Blackberry devices.

Shortly after the announcement, a software company notified Blackberry that the “BBX” name is copyrighted and trademarked for its own software.
