Previously we have seen that the Delhi High Court has ordered Xiaomi to stop sales, advertising and even manufacturing or importing phones in India. This is the result of the company infringing upon Ericsson’s standard essential patents. Ericsson has managed to get an injunction against Xiaomi, which prevents the latter from selling phones in India. Now this case has been resolved and Xiaomi can sell its smartphone till January 8, 2015. From today all the nightmares are coming towards OnePlus as they get the ban hammer to sell devices in India. The Delhi High Court has banned the Chinese company from importing and selling OnePlus One in India. The main reason is the CyanogenMod system and the mobile phone manufacturer Micromax India cooperation agreement.
OnePlus gets temporarily banned from selling devices in India
Livemint website reported that the Delhi High Court in India has issued a temporary injunction to stop pre-CyanogenMod OnePlus One imports.
One plus phone currently banned unrelated patents, mainly because the Indian company Micromax had reached an exclusive agreement with the CyanogenMod and an increase in overseas markets phone system ROM was originally cooperation with CyanogenMod.
Additionally, the website said that according to the message they receive from a court, OnePlus to some extent already agreed to give up in the Indian mobile phone market. There is also a news from the OnePlus side that they are working on its own Android ROM, which was expected to be made available later this month.
PS: A Canadian company is the victim in this matter obviously, plus maybe a previous agreement with the CyanogenMod company does have a flaw, but CyanogenMod role in this incident clearly disgraceful.
