Bad Time for Apple - After Steve Jobs

Motorola has won a formal injunction against Apple in Germany. The court of Mannheim informed that Apple infringed upon two of Motorola’s European patents:

  • Method for performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system. 
  • Multiple pager status synchronization system and method. 

Motorola issued the following statement: “As media and mobility continue to converge, Motorola Mobility’s patented technologies are increasingly important for innovation within the wireless and communications industries, for which Motorola Mobility has developed an industry leading intellectual property portfolio. We will continue to assert ourselves in the protection of these assets, while also ensuring that our technologies are widely available to end-users. We hope that we are able to resolve this matter, so we can focus on creating great innovations that benefit the industry.”

Apple made the following statement: “This is a procedural issue, and has nothing to do with the merits of the case,” Apple said in a statement. “It does not affect our ability to sell products or do business in Germany at this time.”
