Blackberry began a campaign of claims (some would say absurd) against פייסבוק And against Snapchett. Who will be next?
BlackBerry, the Canadian phone maker, is not making as much money these days as it did in its heyday, and cynics were not surprised to see the company move to try to get money in other ways - by filing a patent lawsuit against פייסבוק Last month.
The prosecution claimed that פייסבוק Infringement of 7 patents related to the Company's messaging technology. The formidable social network led by Mark Zuckerberg reacted sharply: "BlackBerry's lawsuit sadly reflects the current state of its messaging business. After abandoning its efforts for new developments, BlackBerry is now trying to cut a coupon on others' innovation. We intend to fight," a representative responded פייסבוק.
Now, it seems the company has moved on to attack a new target - Snapshot. The lawsuit accuses Snapshot of infringing six patents, which this time too are patents relating to messaging technologies between users. Two of those patents, were among the seven that have already appeared in the lawsuit against פייסבוק.
For an amusing example, it seems that one of the patents mentioned In writing the complaint Refers to "displaying a number next to the call icon, indicating how many new messages are in it".
lol. This will be a fun read for all of us. And according to a Snap spokesperson, the company has not yet reviewed the complaint. https://t.co/IdLSmNquKI

However, the Blackberry representative claims that the company has a strong case against Snapecht following the alleged violation of those patents.
