Rate this post

Apple has lost the exclusive rights to the iPhone name in China to a firm selling leather goods.

The firm, Xintong Tiandi Technology, which was also granted permission to use the name in 2010 won a court ruling at the Beijing Municipal High People’s Court after Apple contested it’s use of their trademark.
[post_ad] Xintong Tiandi applied for the “IPHONE” trademark for leather goods in 2007, and it was granted in 2010 while Apple also applied for the same trademark for electronic goods in 2002, but it wasn’t granted until 2013.

The court in it’s ruling claimed Apple couldn’t prove it was a well-known brand in China in 2007 and facts show that the iPhone was unavailable for sale in China until 2009.

This is a big blow to Apple as the company considers China its second most-important market after North America.
