RIM Sues Samsung Over Smartphone Trade Name

Here's another lawsuit over trade names.  Research In Motion is suing Samsung over the word "black" in the name of a new smart phone that Samsung is distributing.  That's the BlackJack that's getting Samsung in trouble, as RIM alleges the offending trade name tries to ride the coattails of the ever popular BlackBerry.  Close?  Not close?  You make the call until a judge in the Central District of California renders a decision, or until the case is settled.  Blackjack, the game, is not involved in this suit.

Stories are in TechNewsWorld, The Globe and Mail, and Ars Technica.
