After allegedly trying to hold discussions with Facebook for the past “several years,” BlackBerry finally decided to take Facebook to court today, filing a patent infringement lawsuit against the social media giant.

While official court records aren’t available online yet, Variety reports that BlackBerry has accused Facebook of co-opting parts of the company’s mobile messaging tech, and is seeking an injunction that, if granted, could shut down Facebook, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram.

Additionally, BlackBerry is reportedly seeking as-of-yet unspecified monetary damages due to Facebook’s alleged “willful infringement” of BlackBerry’s patents.
