BlackBerry Deserves Compensation for its Failure

RIM, the makes of BlackBerry are quickly approaching a financial free-fall.

They have been unable to adapt their products to properly compete with the Android and iPhone. Even the US Government is starting to adopt the iPhone (and the US Government is insanely slow to change).

As a result, BlackBerry is fast approaching the point of no return, if they haven’t already reached it. They are screwed.

Their business model was disrupted by two companies who previously represented no threat. They are losing money, and will continue to lose more in the future. As a consequence Apple and Google should be forced to pay RIM enough money annually to keep the company financially solvent.

If the news, record, movie and print industries are entitled to compensation for dying business models, RIM should be too.
