Doro wins further ruling in phone design dispute against additional competitor in Germany

Lund, Sweden, 2011-09-19 10:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  

On September 7, 2011, in a preliminary injunction imposing a considerable fine for infringement, the German Landgericht Hamburg court prohibited Emporia Deutschland, a competitor to Doro, from holding, selling, using, importing or exporting in, to or from the European Union a clamshell mobile phone labeled “Telme”. The recently launched phone is reminiscent of Doro’s equivalent products and thus constitutes an infringement of Doro’s registered design rights.

The phones constituting an infringement of Doro’s rights shall be placed in Doro’s keep until a final decision regarding their destruction has been reached.

As recently as in January, German company ITM Einkauf was prohibited from selling a model that infringed upon Doro’s registered pattern for its Doro Phone Easy®410gsm model.

“I am very pleased that the Landgericht Hamburg court acknowledges 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.
