A German court on Tuesday ruled that Motorola’s original Xoom tablet does not infringe upon a patent covering the design of Apple’s iPad, Fox Business reported. While the ruling favored Motorola, the court rejected the company’s claim that Apple’s design patent was invalid. The Cupertino-based company originally sued Motorola for allegedly infringing three iPad design patents and was seeking an injunction barring sales of the Motorola slate across Europe. The court ordered Apple to pay two-thirds of associated court fees and Motorola was instructed to pay the remaining third.
