Motorola wins patent lawsuit against Apple
TT Correspondent |  |  10 Dec 2011

In a major setback to Apple’s immediate sales prospects of iPhones and iPads in Germany a regional court on Friday pronounced that Motorola Mobility won a preliminary injunction against it in Germany.

 

To enforce the injunction, Motorola Mobility has to pay about 100 million euros ($133.8 million) as bond.

 

The court ruled that that Apple Sales International - European sales subsidiary of Apple in Cork, Ireland - must stop selling or distributing mobile devices that infringe certain Motorola patents.

 

AS a result of this could bar the sales of all Apple products that use the patents such as iPhone 4 and iPad 3G could be barred.

 

Meanwhile Motorola Mobility said it has been negotiating with Apple and offering the company "reasonable licensing terms and conditions since 2007."

 

Motorola Mobility "will continue our efforts to resolve our global patent dispute as soon as practicable," it said in a statement.
