Press release from DJI Global, the makers of the popular DJI Phantom series of camera drones:
Hong Kong Dajiang Innovations Technology Co., Ltd. (‘DJI HK’) can confirm that a minority shareholder in DJI North America (‘DJI NA’) has obtained an injunction restricting dealings with a limited number of its broader North American distribution network.
Decided at a preliminary hearing before a detailed examination of evidence, this injunction temporarily restricts the company from marketing or selling DJI products to a list of 31 dealers in North America – 19 of which are no longer active dealers – that the minority shareholder has made a part of this legal proceeding.
DJI NA is not, and never has been, an exclusive distributor of DJI products in North America.
“DJI will actively and aggressively address this issue in US courts because the company has complied fully with all laws and regulations in the implementation of its business with DJI NA. We are confident that we will prevail in this matter,” said Asher Griffin, legal counsel for DJI HK.
DJI Global will continue to carry out all research, design and development of aerial platforms for creators and innovators around the world, as it has since its founding in 2006 by CEO Frank Wang.
