Motorola Wins Injunction Against Apple in Germany, Apple Can Still Sell Their Devices
Foss Patents broke news about Motorola possibly winning an injunction against Apple products in Germany. If true it would be a huge blow to Apple’s presence in the European market.
Good thing for Apple it's not.
Motorola did in fact win an injunction against Apple in a regional court in Germany. The judgement does not mean Apple can be kept from selling the iPhone and their other products as the suit takes aim at Apple Inc. and not their local subsidiary in the region.
The default judgement Foss Patents posted was handed down by the Mannheim Regional court in Germany and granted the injunction based on rulings that Apple infringed on two of Motorola’s patents. Both patents are European with one describing a “method for performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system" and the other a “multiple pager status synchronization system and method.”
"This is a procedural issue and has nothing to do with the merits of the case. It does not affect our ability to do business or sell products in Germany at this time." — Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet

At this point is there really anything "new" in the electronic community..... It would seem no matter who you are you're going to be stepping on someone's IP no matter what you make.
