RIM Runs into Trademark Dispute over BBX Name

Computerworld: Earlier this week, BlackBerry maker RIM announced plans for a new mobile operating system it calls BBX, but now a New Mexico software company says it has already trademarked BBx. The firm, Basis International, registered the trademark on July 4, 2006, in the field of “Computer programs and associated documentation providing tools and programming language to enable software developers to create and prepare business, internet, and applications software.”

Basis said it has taken legal action to protect its trademark. In response, RIM said the two types of software were different enough that there would be no confusion about the names.
