Blackberry - remember those once nifty devices that allowed you to access emails on the move? We all had one, but now it appears their strategic approach is to move to a 'licensing mode' to exploit its portfolio of patents - here come the lawsuits.
Well, as the old saying goes - if you can't innovate, litigate.
BlackBerry has filed three patent infringement lawsuits in as many weeks. The struggling phone company's offensive barrage began with a case filed against IP telephony company Avaya on July 27. Last week, BlackBerry filed two lawsuits against budget cell phone maker BLU's products, alleging that BLU infringes a whopping 15 patents.
