According to Apple's lawyers, due to the patent dispute of Klockcom in Germany, temporary bans on sale of old iPhones in Germany are only related to them, but not their seller of contract.
According to Apple's lawyers, there is clearly not restricted. They discovered a way to bring back the impact of Qualcomm, which, due to the latest patent dispute, temporarily banned iPhone 7 and 8 in Germany, and continued to block sales (almost).
Let's go to the line.
The patent for energy conservation is controversial
Qualcomm, a technical company in the United States, which produces processor chips for smartphones in other things, is convinced that older Apple smartphones, such as Code 7 and 8, violate their patents for energy savings. In search of justice, they demanded a ban on the sale of these devices in Germany.
The court upheld his request, but according to German law, the execution needed to be paid to the rescuers if the High Court otherwise decided. In this case, it was more than just 1.3 billion euros.
Qualcomm has deposited this security and therefore a ban on sale of iPhone 7 and 8 in Germany has come into effect. Apple immediately withdrew the phone from almost 15 stores throughout Germany, but the story does not end there.
So who is the legal ban?
Sales continue in all weeks and eight German stores, which are not directly owned by Apple.
Apple's lawyers have interpreted the ban that if they (and not just them) were not allowed to sell the controversial phone, their sales were completely restricted in Germany. Accordingly, Apple continues to supply all its iPhoneHans distributors and mobile operators, which significantly removes the impact of the ban on the acquisition of Qualcomm in German courts.
Back to court
Of course, Qualcomm does not share this opinion and ensures that the restriction applies to iPhone 7 and 8, not just by Apple.
Apparently, the American technical giant will have to return to the German court as soon as possible and how they will imagine this ban. Meanwhile, the sale of the latest iPhone from the X-series in Germany has been unlisted, because the legal war does not apply to them.
