    Last week, Flipkart had taken Nikon India to court over a June 2014 advisory on its website cautioning its consumers against buying its products from Flip kart and Snapdeal.

    Nikon had said web sites such as Flip kart and Snapdeal are not authorised dealers for Nikon products in India, hence consumers should `check the warranty entitle ments while buying from online por tals'.

    Following this, several companies like LG, Dell, HP, Le novo and Toshiba r advisories against issued similar advisories against ecommerce players on their respective websites last year.

    During the court argument, Judge BS Patil asked Nikon India why it specifically named both these players after Flipkart counsel argued that the company was being singled out. Following this, Nikon agreed to withdraw these names from the advisory. Flipkart competitor Snapdeal had filed a case against kitchen appliance maker Kaff last year for a similar advisory on its website. The case is currently pending trial.
