Nokia patent dispute
The patent dispute between Nokia and the Chinese manufacturers Oppo and Oneplus is entering the next round. Now the sale of smartphones to third-party dealers has also been banned.
The patent dispute between Nokia and the Chinese companies Oneplus and Oppo, which has been smoldering for months, is enriched by another chapter. After a sales ban was pushed through on the official manufacturer websites in August 2022 and rumors of a complete withdrawal from the German and European market even smoldered in the meantime, the situation becomes even trickier. As Nokia announces via its press agency, the Mannheim district court has now also obtained a ban on sales from resellers. This reports, among other things Winfuture.
Well-known shops such as Cyberport, Otto, Mediamarkt and Saturn are among the third-party providers where both Oppo and Oneplus have been allowed to sell their smartphones up to this point. This step was justified by the fact that these resellers also violate applicable patent law. This also includes newly introduced models such as the latest Oneplus 11.
Other retailers like Amazon have found an option, at least temporarily, to continue offering smartphones from Oppo and Oneplus. The smartphones are offered through Marketplace dealers based in Great Britain. Some of the items are still shipped from Germany.
As early as March, Oppo assured that they felt committed to the European markets and had planned a number of other products for the rest of the year, which should also be released in Europe. But Oppo is talking about the entire product range. Products such as smartwatches or headphones are not affected by the patent dispute with Nokia. The fate of the smartphones from Oppo and Oneplus in Europe and especially in Germany, however, remains open.Continue to home page
