HP stops Expansys importing non-Euro PDAs | Channel Register: "After hearing the case last month, Justice Laddie came down on the side of HP when he delivered his judgement last week.
HP claimed this meant that “HP has the right to prevent iPAQ products being imported into the EU without HP’s consent and that any iPAQ product on the market in the EU without HP’s consent is a trade mark infringement.'
In a statement, the PC giant claimed the judgement underlined the importance of sticking with its authorised channel and made it clear that resellers were playing with fire if they dabbled in the grey market.
HP said that as well as tightening business practices and controls and “improving education and training” it would take “appropriate action against resellers who violate terms of their authorized reseller agreements, including legal recourse if necessary.”"
This is a bad decision ( even if legally correct). And it won't do HP any good either.
