The Chinese Smartphone Giant, Xiaomi, was delivered a solid blow by the Swedish Giant, Ericson, with Delhi High Court ordering immediate suspension of mobile sales in India. The Delhi High Court has reportedly granted an ex parte injunction order against Xiaomi for allegedly infringing on Ericsson's Standard Essential Patents (SEPs). The ex parte injunction against Xiaomi, stops the Chinese manufacturer from "selling, advertising, manufacturing or importing devices" that infringe upon Ericsson's patents. It isn't clear right now if this will affect the sales of all Xiaomi handsets in India, or if the case pertains to any specific devices. Reports indicate that Flipkart is also implicated in the case, and that the Delhi High Court granted the injunction after Xiaomi did not respond to Ericsson's missives. Xiaomi India head Manu Jain in an email reply to NDTV Gadgets has said that he has not received any official notice as such, but the company will evaluate media reports with its legal team and file appropriate response in the court. He also added that Xiaomi is open to talk with Ericsson to resolve the issue amicably. [quote_box_center author=""] While we haven't received an official notice from the Delhi High Court, our legal team is currently evaluating the situation based on the information we have. India is a very important market for Xiaomi and we will respond promptly as needed and in full compliance with Indian laws. Moreover, we are open to working with Ericsson to resolve this matter amicably. [/quote_box_center] Ericsson has been fighting manufacturers to protect its SEPs in the Indian legal system, including a lawsuit against Micromax last year. Micromax had responded with counter-allegations that Ericsson was abusing its dominant position in charging higher royalty on GSM technology patents, and the Competition Commission of India had said it would look into the matter.
