After Cyanogen withdrew support for OnePlus in India and instead announced an exclusive partnership with Micromax, OnePlus has suffered another setback here, as a report states that the Delhi High Court has ordered a temporary injunction against the company.
Delhi High court has decided not to allow OnePlus handset maker to market, sell or ship its phones to India, if they would be coming with Cyanogen logo.
Micromax has bagged for itself an exclusive right to be Cyanogen’s only partner in India. While claiming that, Micromax has signed a deal with Cyanogen on the clause that all the existing devices of OnePlus One in India will not receive OTA updates, because of which the company started working on its custom Android build.
Now, at the time when launch date (Thursday) of Micromax YU Cyanogen phone has almost arrived, Micromax had made it to the Delhi High court for protecting its exclusivity with Cyanogen in the country. As per the report, Micromax claims that the OnePlus One launch in India would breach its exclusivity agreement with Cyanogen.
The company said that they have spent major sum for acquiring the brand exclusively for the Indian customers mobile phones with Cyanogen operating systems. Report further stated that Micromax has told the court, “It would suffer irreparable harm and loss if the defendants (OnePlus) are permitted to continue with their illegal acts in violation of the agreement between Micromax and Cyanogen.” The case is presently listed as pending and perhaps the order is not available yet. The reports reveal that meanwhile the company has been allowed to its stock as long as it doesn’t import more handsets.
