Ryan Seacrest is being sued by Blackberry “AGAIN” for a start company he started saying its iPhone keyboard rips off the design from BlackBerry phones’ physical keyboards.
According to CP.24
BlackBerry Ltd. won a preliminary injunction last year against Typo Products’ first keyboard.
But Typo released a second-generation keyboard in December. Called the Typo2, it is a case that gives iPhones a physical keyboard below the touch screens. Ryan Seacrest company Typo fires back at BlackBerry over iPhone case suit. BlackBerry shares drop after company denies reported Samsung takeover bid in a federal lawsuit filed Monday, BlackBerry said Typo is still infringing on BlackBerry’s patents, including those related to design, backlighting and typing automation technologies.
Seacrest started Typo with entrepreneur Laurence Hallier in 2013. The company declined to comment on the lawsuit.
Physical keyboards remain one of BlackBerry’s signature features, even as the phone’s popularity has waned.
