Patent landscape in China will design Apple’s regional sales strategyJune 23, 2016Recently, there have been numerous reports on Apple Inc.’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus receiving an injunction in Beijing last month. The court injunction was given by China's municipal tribunal in response to a design patent infringement compliant filed by a smartphone startup named Shenzhen Baili. Until the news was announced, Shenzhen Baili - and its parent company Digione - were an unknown player in the China’s smartphone space and it seem to fit the profile of a non-practicing entity (NPE) - or colloquially referred to as patent troll. Shortly after the court injunction order, Apple appealed the court order requesting a review of the ruling. Since then, Apple’s appeal to review the ruling has been accepted and Apple will be able to sell its iPhone 6 and 6 plus models in China until the order is reviewed by the Beijing IP court.
