Apple won lawsuit over iPhone 6 Patent Dispute in China
« on: March 27, 2017, 12:56:40 AM »


In 2016, Chinese officials ruled that Apple could no longer sell its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones in the country, because they violated a manufacturer’s patent. Shenzhen Baili filed a lawsuit in June last year, claiming that Apple allegedly violated the patent of its 100c smartphone.

After the lawsuit was filed, the Beijing Intellectual Property Office ruled that Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus did in fact infringe on patent rights, claiming that Apple allegedly copied the exterior design of the 100c phone.

Chinese authorities ordered Apple to halt sales in Beijing, but the decision was overturned by an appeal and the phones remained on shelves. Recently, a Chinese Court ruled in favor of Apple and decided that the Cupertino company didn’t infringe the design of the patent filed by Shenzhen Baili company, according to Reuters.

The Court said that Apple’s iPhone 6/6 Plus and Shenzhen Baili’s 100c were easily distinguishable for consumers. The decision surely pleases Apple, especially since the company recently released a red variant of its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models in China too.
