Motorola reportedly secures injunction against Apple in Germany
Summary: Here’s a twist: Motorola Mobility has secured an injunction
against Apple selling mobile products in Germany.
The tables have (allegedly) turned. Motorola Mobility has secured an
injunction against the sale of Apple mobile products in Germany, according
to FOSS Patents’ Florian Mueller.
Citing “a copy of what purports to be a default judgment by the Mannheim
Regional Court,” this would mean that Apple is prohibited from selling any
mobile devices that infringe upon on two Motorola patents in Germany.
Additionally, Apple would owe MMI financial damages for patent
infringement stemming back from at least April 19, 2003. Wow.
Uh oh! Maybe Apple should consider trying to end this patent extortion
