Court Issues Injunction Against Polaroid iM1836

Polaroid iM1836 and Nikon 1 J2 Digital Cameras
Back in October, we posted a news article regarding Nikon's lawsuit against Sakar, the manufacturer of the Polaroid iM1836 digital camera. Nikon claimed that the Polaroid camera imitated the design of their 1 J2 mirrorless camera.
 
On December 4, a court ordered a Preliminary Injunction Order that prohibits manufacture, promotion and sale of the Polaroid iM1836 camera.
 
From Nikon:
 
Court issues consent injunction in lawsuit against Sakar over Polaroid iM1836 digital camera
 
December 6, 2013 – On October 11, 2013, Nikon Corporation and Nikon Inc. ("Nikon") sued Sakar International, Inc. ("Sakar") in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York for design patent infringement and trade dress infringement arising from Sakar's "Polaroid iM1836" digital camera (Case No. 13-Civ-7228 (S.D.N.Y)).
 
Shortly thereafter, Nikon moved for a preliminary injunction to stop the sales and advertising of the Polaroid iM1836 digital camera. After appearing before the Court, Sakar and Nikon agreed on the terms of a preliminary injunction. The Court thus issued a Preliminary Injunction Order on December 4, 2013 (Eastern Standard Time).
 
As part of the injunction, Sakar will no longer manufacture, import, advertise, promote, offer for sale, sell, or ship the Polaroid iM1836 digital camera in its present configuration.
 
The abovementioned design patent and trade dress rights are related to the "Nikon 1" Advanced Camera with Interchangeable Lenses.
