    So we may see a RIM vs BGR. Perhaps we should let RIM know about this court ruling.

    That may be true, but RIM has bigger things to worry about than a gossip blogger like BGR. I would much rather them focus their attention on the things that we are expecting from them in 2012.

    Their actions in giving BGR attention just makes RIM look bad, but Id still like to see RIM call them out on their sources in a court of law. BGR as much as they are full of crap they have a huge following and do make a huge impact on the tech world.

    Oh dammit!
    Now even several news sites are using BGR as a source! 5 Dutch (large) news websites are saying that RIM is delaying BB10 because it's not finished according to tech site BGR!
    What the FREK?! Now I wanna sue BGR! This can get out of hand or is it me? If people are using unconfirmd reports as being true...

    If I were RIM, I'd sue them in court for sure, considering the damages they have caused RIM.
