Judge Gronis Issues Ruling on Appeal in Balugan – Spin Master Case

In November last year, the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that where customs was dealing with an issue, they would not get involved. See: Israel district court refuses to hear parallel importing case concurrently with customs authority and awards expenses against plaintiff.

Imperiat Tsaatsuim LTD. (Toy Empire) appealed the ruling. Judge Gronis of the Supreme Court considers that there are very many issues of parallel importing under the new Copyright Law that have not yet been resolved, and finds the relationship between Sega and Spinmaster for dividing the world fascinating. Nevertheless, particularly as he found the appeal long and convoluted, he rejected the Appeal and has decided to let the decision stand.  

Appeal Number 10119/09 Imperiat TsaAttsuim vs. Diamant Tsaatsuim and others, concerning Spinmaster.
