BlackBerry alleges Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram are infringing on BBM patents
BlackBerry Messenger was the iMessage of the late 2000s, especially since it was initially exclusive to the company’s own hardware. BBM expanded to iOS and Android in 2013, but it has become mostly irrelevant thanks to competitors like WhatsApp and iMessage. BlackBerry is now suing Facebook and its subsidiaries (including WhatsApp and Instagram), alleging that Facebook is violating numerous BBM patents.
The lawusit was filed by BlackBerry Ltd today, and the complaint is a whopping 117 pages.
