German Court Ruling Sheds Doubt on Motorola Patents’ Worth

A regional court in Munich has ruled that Google-owned Motorola Mobility infringed an Apple patent related to touchscreen technology. The court placed a preliminary injunction on devices that use the patent-infringing tech, including the Motorola Milestone XT720, the Motorola Defy, the Motorola Atrix and the Motorola Xoom. This is unlikely to be the final word for the companies in this venue — the injunction is preliminary, and Motorola could appeal the ruling. It could also craft a workaround in order to continue selling in the German market.
