Injunctions Issued Against iMac Knockoffs:

March 09, 2000

Apple Computer Inc. said it secured worldwide injunctions that prevent three companies from making and selling PCs that it contends are knockoffs of its popular iMac personal computers. Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple had filed lawsuits charging South Korea's Daewoo Group, EMachines Inc. in Irvine and Japan's K.K. Sotec with copying the design of the award-winning, multihued iMac line. Apple said Daewoo Group agreed to stop marketing its E-Power computers after the U.S. District Court in San Jose issued a preliminary injunction barring their sale. In a similar injunction, EMachines agreed to stop selling its eOne computers by March 31, and K.K. Sotec agreed to stop manufacturing, selling and exporting eOne computers. Apple closed off 88 cents at $122 on Nasdaq.
