Apple Among Tech Companies That Tried To Buy Blackberry’s IP and Patents

Reuters that Apple, Microsoft Corp and Lenovo Group Ltd are among a group of tech companies that tried to acquire Blackberry  intellectual property and patents. However, BlackBerry Ltd’s board rejected the proposal.

According to the report, the board of the Canadian smartphone maker does not believe it’s in the best interest of the company to break up it’s assets.

“The board rejected proposals from several technology companies for various BlackBerry assets on grounds that a break-up did not serve the interest of all stakeholders, which include employees, customers and suppliers in addition to shareholders,” the report said.

Microsoft and Apple were part of a consortium – RockStar, which bought the patents of former Canadian tech giant Nortel last year after it went bankrupt. The Rockstar consortium is now suing the likes of Samsung and Google for patent infringement.
