SpicyIP Tidbit: Xiaomi Appeals Injunction, Allowed to Sell Devices

xiaomi-india-2In a spicy twist to the battle raging on in the Delhi High Court between Xiaomi and Ericsson, a new Division Bench order provides some respite for the former. Xiaomi had appealed the injunction that was granted against it ex-parte by a Single Judge bench on the 8th of December this year. The Division Bench orders, as can be gathered from the information available here, that Xiaomi is allowed to sell its devices in India, subject to a number of conditions. These conditions stipulated that Xiaomi could only sell devices that carried chips imported from Qualcomm Inc., a licensee of Ericsson and that Xiaomi was to deposit Rs. 100 for every device sold in India or sells till the 5th of January, 2015. The hearing on the issue of the ex-parte injunction has been ordered to be expedited to the 8th of January before the Single Judge.
