Munich (APA / Reuters) – The Munich regional court bans Apple in the patent dispute with the US chip company Qualcomm claiming that all iPhone models for customers of # 39; mobile operators and distributors remain available throughout Germany.
A press release sent in December was deceptive because it contained misleading information about the availability of merchandise, according to a previous requirement that Reuters had on Friday. Consumers may have believed on this basis that certain iPhones continue to be purchased, although the sale of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models at this time was prohibited by law. Apple was not available for comment.
According to the December 20 ruling, Apple can not sell any model of iPhone 7, 7, eight, eight plus and X in Germany due to the patent infringement allegation of Qualcomm. According to the technology group, these devices have already disappeared from Apple stores. According to Qualcomm, Apple must also recover smartphones affected by distributors. Apple appealed the verdict.
