MOSCOW, October 21 (RAPSI) — The Moscow Commercial Court has banned the Korean company Samsung and its Russian division from importing, selling and storing 61 models of Samsung smartphones in the territory of the Russian Federation, according to an additional court decision.
In particular, the ban affected models released in 2016 (Samsung Galaxy A7 and Samsung Galaxy A5), as well as the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Samsung Galaxy Fold.
This is stated in the additional court decision as to a claim of the Swiss Sqwin SA, which seeks to prohibit the use of the Samsung Pay payment service in Russia, since it allegedly violates its rights to the invention of the Electronic Payment System.
As the Swiss company pointed out in its lawsuit, the payment service "Samsung Pay" used all the features of the invention, the owner of the exclusive right to which it is.
On July 27 the claim of Sqwin SA was granted since the case materials confirmed the fact of violation of the exclusive rights of the claimant to the invention. Therefore, the said right is subject to protection by prohibiting the respondents from using products that employ the payment service "Samsung Pay."
However, the decision of July 27 contained no specific models of mobile devices, so the claimant filed a respective petition with the court, which was granted by the additional court decision.
Samsung Pay is a mobile payment service developed by Samsung Electronics that allows users to make payments using supported phones and other Samsung products.
