    Xiaomi Banned Importing and Selling Handsets in India

    Delhi High Court has banned Xiaomi as well as online e-commerce site Flipkart from selling handsets of the Chinese mobile maker that run on the technology patented by Ericsson in India.

    Ericsson has said that it had invited Xiaomi to use its patented technology by obtaining a licence, but instead of doing so, the Chinese manufacturer launched its devices in India in July 2014.

    I am satisfied that plaintiff (Ericsson) has made out a prima facie case for grant of ad interim injunction in its favour. The balance of convenience also lies in favour of plaintiff and in the absence of an injunction order, plaintiff will suffer irreparable loss and injury, the court said.

    It also issued summons and notice to Xiaomi and Flipkart and directed them to file an affidavit disclosing the number of devices that are AMR, EDGE and 3G compliant sold by them in India till date. They have to also indicate in the affidavit the revenue earned by selling these devices till date.
