Motorola against Apple, still patent war

On Dec-9, a German court issued an injunction against sales of the Apple products in Germany. The court announced its ruling on one of the patent infringement lawsuits Motorola Mobility brought in Germany against Apple in Apr-2011. The Mannheim Regional Court also ruled that Motorola is entitled to a damage reward. Battle between the companies shouldn't be something new for our readers.

Apple is going to appeal this ruling, its spokesperson affirmed: “We’re going to appeal the court’s ruling right away, holiday shoppers in Germany should have no problem finding the iPad or iPhone they want.”

As Motorola has confirmed they have had negotiations with Apple since 2007 over a license to the technology. As for now they seem enemies to each other, the company says: “We will continue our efforts to resolve our patent dispute as soon as practicable.”
