Apple vrea interzicerea vanzarilor de smartphone-uri si tablete Samsung in Europa plus retragerea stocurilor existente

30

     Zilele trecute va spuneam ca o instanta germana a luat decizia de a suspenda temporar interdicia celor de la Samsung pentru a vinde tableta Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europa. Avand in vedere aceasta decizie a curtii europene, Apple a introdus acum o noua cerere in Olanda in care acuza Samsung de incalcarea unor brevete de inventie in intreaga linie Galaxy si cere blocarea vanzarilor plus retragerea tuturor stocurilor existente. Cererea initiala aprobata de o curte din Germania bloca doar vanzarile produselor care nu se aflau inca in stocurile magazinelor deci practic oricine putea vinde fara probleme tot ce avea in stoc dar in Olanda Apple doreste sa blocheze tot.

For the record we would like to mention the fact that by storing, offering and/or selling of the above mentioned Galaxy smartphones [and tablets], you commit infringement of the intellectual property rights of Apple Inc.,” according to suggested wording in the complaint.

“If this injunction is granted it could have ‘significant implications’ for the European market for smartphones and tablet, said Canalys’ Edwards. “This is a very big threat to Samsung, because basically their whole European supply chain will be broken,” he said.

     Practic vorbim despre o cerere prin care Apple incearca sa paralizeze intregul lant de comert al Samsung in Olanda iar daca cererea va fi acceptata acolo atunci compania din Cupertino ar putea introduce una asemanatoare din nou in Germania. Apple cere atat companiei Samsung cat si partenerilor sai ca in termen de 14 zile sa contacteze toate magazinele care vand terminale din seria Galaxy si sa le ceara sa opreasca de tot vanzarile, Desigur ca Samsung nu are acum nici o obligatie legala sa faca  acest lucru insa partea interesanta vine mai jos.

Apple demands an extensive ban on these devices, covering manufacturing, stocking, importing, distributing, trading or selling by Samsung Korea and its Dutch subsidiaries, which include Samsung Logistics BV and Samsung Overseas BV. These companies play a crucial role in the distribution of Samsung products throughout Europe. According to Apple’s complaint, “Samsung Logistics is responsible for 28 distribution channels throughout Europe.”

     Apple cere instantei din Olanda sa interzica, comercializarea tuturor produselor din seria Galaxy dar interezicerea trebuie sa se aplice atat companiei Samsung cat si celorlalte companii partenere care distribuie stocurile in Europa. Practic Apple doreste sa blocheze atat vanzarile din Olanda cat si activitatea companiilor care distribuie terminale din seria Galaxy in intreaga Europa. Daca Apple va reusi atunci Samsung nu va mai putea trimite absolut nimic din Olanda in tarile din UE fara a incalca posibila decizie a curtii.

     Daca instanta de la Haga va lua o decizie in favoarea celor de la Apple vom afla luna viitoare.
