According to Bloomberg, a decree from the Beijing patent office claims that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus violate a Chinese phone design patent . This automatically prevents the sale of the two Apple phones in the eastern country, but most curious of all, it is a patent that imitates the iPhone 6
The truth is that this kind of demands and problems for Apple are not at all rare in China . We have seen how it has lost ownership of the iPhone brand on other occasions, but the strange thing is to see that the one who is suing is a manufacturer who has copied the design of the iPhone. Obviously Apple’s lawyers are already filing a lawsuit asking for the decision to be annulled . And if this is not done, Apple can appeal to the Beijing People’s High Court and the Supreme People’s Court among other administrations.
Apple’s lawyers are already looking to settle with the Chinese manufacturer
As some analysts point out, the demand may be a simple attempt by the Chinese manufacturer to reach an economic agreement . In many cases, Apple and other large companies prefer to put an end to this type of disturbance by paying a significant amount of money and saving themselves the most cumbersome legal procedures.
We will see how this process ends, although it is true that the sale of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus will most likely not be cancelled, we must be vigilant, as we can expect anything from China.
