The IPKat learns from Engadget of a new spate of berry-inspired litigation. RIM has filed a claim in Los Angeles, arguing that Samsung’s BlackJack handset infringes RIM’s BlackBerry trade mark.
The IPKat doubts whether there would be any confusion, but he suspects that it’s more than coincidental that Samsung has chosen, of all the possible names, one beginning with the word ‘black’. Having said that, while unfair advantage is actionable in the EU, it isn’t in the US.
