Huseby was sentenced in the Court of Appeal, where he was also ordered to destroy 62 iPhones. But the Supreme Court finds that there is so much uncertainty about the ruling that the case will now be finally decided in the highest court in the country.
The appeal of law enforcement must now be reconsidered by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court should not re-evaluate the evidence, and this part of the appeal is dismissed.
"If the verdict is true, it means that Apple is keeping the ironclad in business and hindering competition because relevant players must comply with the verdict. It is sad. Therefore, the Supreme Court is now considering an appeal," Huseby wrote in an SMS shortly following a judgment in the Court of Appeal.
"We are not here to stop Husby's business, but to protect the trademark from abuse and piracy and to ensure that products sold under the Apple trademark expect quality for the benefit of consumers," said Apple's Anders lawyer Ervin Solberg, a lawyer at Onsagers January 2018.
"If the parts were non-trademarked, we would not have gone to trial," he said.
Stopped in customs
– This is David v. Goliath. We need to move away from use and disposal, then beyond repair and maintenance. This judgment will help the contrary.
This was said by the head of the organization Future in our hands, Anja Bakken Riise.
In Oslo District Court, and ever since the Court of Appeal in Borgarting, Iphone repairman Henrik Huseby and his sole owner, PCKompaniet, have been fighting the tech giant Apple, one of the world's largest companies.
While Huseby at Ski is a bit off Oslo, the US Apple Iphone, Ipader, Macer and others were sold for nearly NOK 2,300 billion last year.
It all started when Norwegian customs officers stopped a packet from Hong Kong from 63 mobile screens two years ago at Gardermoen Airport. The repaired screens had an Apple logo, covered in black ink. Customs officers acted at the behest of the Oslo city bailiff, where Apple received a so-called temporary injunction.
It is common for broken screens in the west to be sent to China for repair, after which the screens are returned to servicemen in the west.
Apple has filed a lawsuit against, they believed, the importation of illegal copies and infringement of their trademark. After losing to Oslo District Court this winter, Apple defeated Huseby on appeal in late June.
Judges of the Court of Appeal will find that the screens are illegal copies. The verdict was defeating for Huseby:
- He was convicted of destroying his mobile screens
- He was sentenced to pay $ 5,500 to Apple for license fees
- He was ordered to pay part of the legal expenses of the tech giant. But the Court of Appeal found that the case was so fundamental that Huseby would have to pay 75,000 of Apple's total court costs of nearly $ 250,000.
It will now be the best of the three when the Supreme Court will finally decide the case.(Conditions)Copyright Dagens Næringsliv AS and / or our suppliers.
