+ - BlackBerry sues Ryan Seacrest's Typo over 'iconic' keyboard design->

Submitted by alphadogg
alphadogg (971356) writes "BlackBerry, in an effort to protect one of its key designs, has filed a copyright infringement suit against a company co-founded by Ryan Seacrest that makes a keyboard case for the iPhone.
On Friday the struggling smartphone maker filed a lawsuit against Typo Products LLC, a company that makes a slip-on keyboard designed to fit the iPhone 5 and 5S. The company, which is based in Los Angeles, was founded by entrepreneur Laurence Hallier and television personality Ryan Seacrest. The company's flagship product, the "Typo Keyboard," was conceived to make typing on the iPhone quicker and less prone to typos."

The original article, which is talking about the FDA pulling the plug on a medical service due to its operator not addressing some red tape with respect to safety standards, is a good illustration of the interventionist form of "statism". Subsidized health care doesn't necessarily dictate what the medical industry can do in the same way, but taxing people and spending the money on certain kinds of health programs is definitely an economic intervention that pushes the medical industry in a certain direction. What do you think, Mr. Anon.? Did you have this similarity in mind when you wrote your post?

It took Citrix three days to issue a hot fix, leaving some users to try workarounds like winding their clocks back to 2011 to regain desktop access."
