Why Xiaomi Banned in India?
One bad news for Xiaomi lover and company, in few month Xiaomi is one of the largest handset seller company India. Now Delhi High Court has reportedly granted an ex parte injunction order against Xiaomi for allegedly infringing on Ericsson’s Standard Essential Patents (SEPs).
The ex parte injunction against Xiaomi, reported by SpicyIP, stops the Chinese manufacturer from “selling, advertising, manufacturing or importing devices” that infringe upon Ericsson’s patents.
It isn’t clear right now if this will affect the sales of all Xiaomi handsets in India, or if the case pertains to any specific devices.
Reports indicate that Flipkart is also implicated in the case, and that the Delhi High Court granted the injunction after Xiaomi did not respond to Ericsson’s missives.
In an emailed statement to NDTV Gadgets, Xiaomi India Head, Manu Jain, responded to the Delhi High Court Injunction.
While we haven’t received an official notice from the Delhi High Court, our legal team is currently evaluating the situation based on the information we have.
India is a very important market for Xiaomi and we will respond promptly as needed and in full compliance with Indian laws. Moreover, we are open to working with Ericsson to resolve this matter amicably.
Ericsson has been fighting manufacturers to protect its SEPs in the Indian legal system, including a lawsuit against Micromax last year.
