What I find really odd is that BBx by basis, is actually BBj, and 'x' in the moniker is actually just a variable placement (in this case as a placeholder for a version number)... like 'n' is in algebraic equations. not to mention that the registered trademark is for BBxProgression/2, 3, 4, Pro/5, etc.. The original trademark alone for BBx, according to US patent and trademarks, is registered worldwide seven thousand some odd times by many different companies and entities (as of 2010). It seems the original Basis International 'BBx' trademark has long been released seemingly because the full BBxPRO... names are still trademarked, but not 'BBx'... weird no?
Frankly, RIM could counter-sue them for using the "BB" moniker as its trademarked (and up kept) by RIM.
I see it going a few ways, RIM has to pay out a little bit, BBX name stays, and Basis International will have to change their BBx to simply BB[version#] with lettering unable to be used to denote version number..
Frankly, If Basis International wants to get some money from a frivolous lawsuit, RIM should send notice to the British Broadcasting Corporation... since Basis International had used BBc at one point using their newer designations.
Maybe bring BankAtlantic Bancorp, Inc. into it for everyone using their Stock Exchange designation. lol
