BlackBerry e BLU Products, accordo raggiunto sull'utilizzo di brevetti

Facciamo un passo indietro ad agosto del 2016 quando BlackBerry confermava di aver avviato due cause legali contro Blu Products per l'utilizzo non concordato di brevetti. All'epoca, BlackBerry sosteneva che Blu Products violava brevetti multipli del brand canadese utilizzando, senza autorizzazione, la tecnologia proprietaria di BlackBerry nei dispositivi mobili a marchio BLU. Stando al comunicato stampa rilasciato da poco, BlackBerry ha annunciato di aver raggiunto un accordo con BLU Products anche se i termini di questo non sono noti.

Di seguito il comunicato stampa completo:
