In March 2019, mobile phone manufacturer Xiaomi from China organized a launch event for its mobile phones in the Netherlands. It subsequently brought its phones on the Dutch market shortly after the summer. In September 2019, Fractus sued Xiaomi and various distributors for patent infringement before the Provisions Judge of the District Court of The Hague. Fractus sought an injunction covering not only the Netherlands, but also Germany, Spain and France. In its decision of 10 December 2019, the Judge held that it was competent to grant such cross-border injunction against Xiaomi and the distributors.
