RIM has to sue. If you hold a trademark, it is the holders obligation to vigorously defend it or lose it, not only to competitors but into the general lexicon. if RIM doesn't defend it "Blackberrying" could become a general use term and any phone that has a competitive system could use the expression such as "for a Blackberry experience, use our phone...". Or such.
