Motorola fails to win German injunction against Apple

FOSS Patents:

Judge Andreas Voss of the Mannheim Regional Court announced that a Motorola Mobility lawsuit over a patent declared essential to the 3G/UMTS wireless telecommunications standard has been dismissed.

Motorola has won previous injunctions against Apple for patents pertaining to GPRS and e-mail communications, but this was one that FOSS Patents’ Florian Mueller thought was bound to fail once it got in front of a judge.
