Indian court lifts interim ban on OnePlus One

The Delhi High Court has lifted a ban on import and sales of the OnePlus One. Earlier OnePlus One was banned by another judge for sell and import in India because of using Cyanogen‘s branding and software. The local seller Micromax calimed in the court that only it has exclusive rights for using Cyanogen’s branding and software.

The Delhi High Court judge remarked that “prima-facie neither (OnePlus or Micromax) competes nor eats into the territory of the other. The judge remarked that OnePlus One is aimed at the high-end market while Micromax primarily targets the entry-level segment in India.

But the issue is not settled yet as the case is handed back to the judge who issued the injunction of banned on OnePlus One. A formal court hearing scheduled for January 7, 2015. On the next hearing all three parties OnePlus, Micromax and Cyanogen would be present before the Court.
