Motorola devices could be banned following loss in German patent spat with Apple

Updated 4 years ago

Apple on Thursday was granted an injunction on multiple Motorola devices that make use of its slide-to-unlock patent, FOSS Patents reports. The ruling came from Judge Peter Guntz of Munich’s Regional Court in Germany, and it allows Apple to enforce a permanent injunction against a number of Motorola’s Android devices at anytime. The court evaluated three different embodiments, two of which Apple won. The Cupertino-based company was unsuccessful on the third embodiment, which involved the Motorola XOOM. Both companies are expected to appeal the court’s ruling.
