xiaomi-mi3-e1424504804759

Xiaomi will be taking legal action against websites selling its phones illegally and infringing on the company’s trademark in India. The company at present has an ongoing patent dispute with Ericsson.

The Swedish telecom equipment maker had alleged earlier this month that Xiaomi was selling MediaTek-powered smartphones through Xiaomishop.com, in violation of an interim order of the Delhi High Court that allowed the company to only sell Qualcomm chipset smartphones. The Chinese smartphone maker had then told the court that the website was not an authorized seller for Xiaomi products.

In more steps to conform to Indian laws and assuage lingering concerns, Xiaomi is in talks with manufacturing partners Foxconn and Inventec to set up a manufacturing base in India, its second most important market after China, apart from moving its data servers to the country by end of 2015. See more
