Apple asks the court to Beijing to remove the ban on the sales of the iPhone 6
Apple has requested the court to Beijing to remove the block sales of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus because of the legal dispute with Shenzhen Baili relating to certain patents.
Apple has then prompted the “Beijing Intellectual Property Court” to remove the lock of the sales on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus after the cause for some similarities in the aesthetic with the smartphone Baili 100C. Apple claims that the iPhone 6 has several aesthetic differences (about 13) and that, therefore, the allegations are unfounded and unreasonable. The lawyer of Apple, Yang Pu, argued that consumers can easily distinguish the two terminals.
Baili had filed its cause of the patent against Apple in December 2014, at a time when the company was close to the financing of two large investors such as Baidu. At the time of decision of last June in favor of Baili, the company was insolvent. The company, however, according to the declared by the parent company, Dijon, is in effect an entity which is not the practitioner that has remained operational in its necessary functions. Still, in the form of a patent-troll, Dijon has a thought of expand also the case for the models of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
It is interesting to note that the patent on the design of the smartphone 100C, dating back to march 2014, a period of time in which began to leak the pictures and diagrams of what would become the iPhone 6. It was hypothesized that Baili simply has scimmiottato the material leaked by Apple in an attempt to obtain a product similar to the iPhone 6 before the normal update cycle of the tech giant from Cupertino. The company, however, denies vehemently these items.
In any case, the “Beijing Intellectual Property Court” has not provided a verdict after Apple's request yesterday, and then wait for the outcome of the process.
