Fingers crossed for Norwegian repairer Henrik Huseby today 🇳🇴


#1

All eyes on Norway today, as an Oslo court will decide on Apple’s appeal in their suit against professional repairer Henrik Huseby. Apple sued him for using refurbished mobile screens. They lost last year but appealed.

Background

@Kaja_Juul_Skarbo (from Restarters Oslo) is in touch with Huseby’s lawyers, and is planning on dropping by the hearing. We are in touch the author of the story above, so we are hoping whatever happens for some good coverage.

Apparently Huseby will have to wait another two weeks (or more!) for a judgement. We’re going to talk with @Kaja_Juul_Skarbo about how we might be able to help in some way.

In the meantime, we can all enjoy Louis Rossman’s remote testimony to the Norwegian court. He posted it on YouTube :laughing:

Huseby is quoted in this Norwegian website, (machine translation with corrections)

“This is my job and what I live off of. I stand for what I do and don’t want to bow to Apple’s threats and demands. Apple wants a monopoly on repairs, so they do not sell original spare parts. I’m standing up for what I think is right”

Watch out for a Motherboard article, and potentially more media in coming weeks.
