Original Message Facebook owns both Instagram, a photo and video sharing app, and WhatsApp, which is a messaging and voice-over-internet-protocol (VoIP) service.

In its 117-page court filing, BlackBerry claims the three companies named in the suit have developed applications that improperly use BlackBerry's mobile messaging intellectual property.

The suit claims the defendants "created mobile messaging applications that co-opt BlackBerry's innovations, using a number of the innovative security, user interface, and functionality enhancing features that made BlackBerry's products such a critical and commercial success in the first place."

The claims in the suit have not been tested in court. BlackBerry has requested the case be heard by a jury.
