German Court confirms previous preliminary ruling against German competitor on phone design

Lund, Sweden, 2012-01-27 11:59 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
On January 17, the Landgericht Hamburg court in Germany upheld the previous preliminary ruling of September 7, 2011. In that ruling, Doro’s competitor, Emporia Deutschland, was forbidden, subject to a considerable fine, from holding, selling, using, importing or exporting a clamshell mobile phone model with a certain appearance and marketed under the Telme brand. The phone, which was launched last summer, is similar in appearance to Doro’s equivalent products and thus constitutes an infringement of Doro’s registered design rights.

The phones that infringe on Doro’s rights may not be sold.

“I am very pleased that the Landgericht Hamburg court has confirmed our position. We work intensively and continuously with innovation, design and branding. That is why we also promptly and consistently challenge any infringements upon our intellectual property rights,” says Jérôme Arnaud, President and CEO of Doro.
