Doro wins dispute against German competitor over telephone design

Lund, Sweden, 2011-01-10 10:00 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  

A German court (Landgericht) has issued a ruling preventing German manufacturer ITM Einkaufs
GmbH from selling a model similar in design to Doro's phones. The court found that the phone
represented an encroachment on one of Doro's registered designs for its PhoneEasy® 410gsm model.

During the autumn, the German company launched a new mobile phone that in crucial respects
resembled Doro's best-selling model, the Doro PhoneEasy® 410gsm. Having been made aware of the
similarities, Doro brought suit against ITM in the German court, requesting that it immediately ban
further marketing and sales of the product.

The court responded swiftly, prohibiting ITM from selling and marketing its copied product pending a
final ruling in the case. ITM requested a reassessment of this ruling and was given the opportunity to
make a statement regarding the suit brought by Doro and the ruling of the court. On December 17,
2010, the court resolved to maintain its ruling, which is a provisional injunction, prohibiting ITM from
selling its product.

Doro works continuously with branding, design and innovation and consistently resists all and any
infringements on its intellectual property rights.
