(UBNT: Quote) announced that on June 20, the U.S. federal court for the Northern District of California granted the Company's application for a temporary restraining order enjoining Kozumi USA Corp. and its owner Shao Wei Hsu and anyone in active concert or participation with them from: using in any manner any registered trademark owned by Ubiquiti, or any name or mark that wholly incorporates or is confusingly similar to Ubiquiti's trademarks; moving, destroying, or otherwise disposing of any items confusingly or deceptively similar to Ubiquiti's products and that bear any of Ubiquiti's trademarks.
