FACEBOOK SUES BLACKBERRY FOR VOICE-MESSAGING TECH

THE STORY

Blackberry is getting sued by Facebook Inc. for stealing voice-messaging tech, and 5 other patents.

WHAT’S ARE THE ACQUISITIONS?

Facebook accused BlackBerry for stealing their six patents, including voice-messaging tech, claiming it to be patent infringement. On Tuesday, Facebook filed a 118-page complaint in San Francisco Federal Court regarding the infringements.

The other patent infringements claimed by Facebook Inc. are:

  1. Infringement of technology, which improves how a mobile device delivers graphics, video and audio.
  2. Patented technology that integrates monitoring and analysis of GPS data.

Well, BlackBerry hasn’t responded yet, but earlier in the month of March this year, it was BlackBerry Ltd., who accused Facebook of patent infringes.

BlackBerry claimed that Facebook is using technology invented by them in popular social messaging apps such as Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp.

IS IT REVENGE TIME FOR FACEBOOK?

This year brought many ups and downs for Facebook. With so many acquisitions, be it Cambridge Analytica Scandal, delete Facebook campaign, getting sued by other organizations for unauthorized use of technology, and many more, it’s been a tough year for Facebook Inc.

We don’t think Facebook now has the time to play, as it has been working day and night to bring on the massive changes in the platform to make it more secure and safe. And, talking about suing BlackBerry, who knows what’s behind the wall.
