    Just seen the latest video of Ryan showing off his wanna be Blackberry. I can't believe they cannot stop this item being sold.
    US Customs seize stuff daily and court orders even stop Samsung from selling certain things during litigation.

    Sorry but this is just wrong...

    Here is the story from TMZ

    Ryan Seacrest
    Slangin' iPhone Keyboard on the Streets
    Suck It BlackBerry!

    Ryan Seacrest isn't fazed one bit by BlackBerry's lawsuit against his new tech company -- which just developed a BlackBerry-esque keyboard for iPhones -- quite the opposite ... he bragged about it last night on the street.

    It's called the Typo -- an iPhone case with a keyboard attachment. Ryan co-founded the company that makes it.

    Ryan dined with former L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

    Legally, the outcome is.clearly uncertain. Yes, there are similarities between the Typo and BlackBerry's keyboard. However, a "keyboard" is just a keyboard. It will come down to many issues, major amongst them is how similar. However, judges hate having things rubbed in their face before they even hear the case. If I were Ryan's attorney, I'd be telling him to lie low until this is resolved.

    I hope typo has deep pockets because this could happen.

    A keyboard is just not a keyboard if u have things patented. 2 for starts are the shape of the keys and the rets between the rows. Typo is going to be paying license fees to BlackBerry at the least

    He doesn't have to stop selling it until the court rules a banning or they reach a settlement. "Suck it BlackBerry" is a few months premature to say the least.

    I really disliked the tone of the TMZ article. They were just playing to the "it's cool to hate BlackBerry" crowd.

    I think it's funny even TMZ referred to it as a "BlackBerry-esque" keyboard.

    I hope BlackBerry wins this lawsuit, regardless of how much or how little money is on the line.
