I've been watching this thread, but haven't said anything until now. I won't try to argue IP law with IP lawyers, it is what it is. Only thing I WILL say is I think the whole thing is rather ridiculous and an indication of what's wrong with our legal system if RIM now can stop a rival company from calling a device "Black[Anything]". They may be able to, but I totally disagree with them being able to do that.
