BlackBerry emerges victorious against Typo Products

BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY) has once-again emerged victorious against Typo Products, a company co-founded by television personality Ryan Seacrest, after a U.S. court upheld a preliminary injunction which blocked the latter from selling its iPhone keyboard.

The preliminary injunction was granted in March, following a complaint filed by BlackBerry which stated that Typo's keyboard likely infringed on its patents.

Typo claimed that it did not violate the ruling due to its introduction of a new keyboard model, although U.S. District Judge William Orrick denied Typo's motion, ruling that a "new keyboard isn't grounds for lifting the preliminary injunction."
