The Cupertino giant accuses it of marketing iPhones, iPads and Apple Watch watches.

Apple sued an electronic components recycling company for reselling more than 100,000 devices of the Manzanita brand as second-hand equipment without authorization.

The recycling company GEEP Canada received between January 2015 and December 2017 more than 570,000 Apple devices for recycling, between iPhones, iPads y relojes Apple Watch.

However, and after an audit, the technology company discovered that 18 percent of the devices that had been commercialized they still had internet access through telephone networks.

As explained in The Logic, the recycling firm resold some 103,845 devices in that period, which, they understand from Apple, could suppose serious security risks of users, because they no longer have the guarantees required by the company for sale to consumers.

The recycling firm, which also had a refurbishment business, defended itself, arguing that the identified resales were work of three employees who stole the terminals behind the company’s back. However, Apple signed in the complaint that the alleged three employees were actually executives.

As indicated on the Apple Insider site, the complaint came to light recently, but it is not so recent: Apple sued GEEP Canada in January and in July the recycling firm filed its counterclaim.

The tech company expects a economic compensation for the profits obtained from the resale of their devices.
