Motorola makes Apple pull iPads and iPhones in Germany
Apple has pulled several iPad and iPhone models from its German online store after Motorola Mobility enforced a patent injunction against its rival.
Having lost not one but multiple lawsuits against Motorola, Apple now finds that not only are its 3G enabled iPads and iPhone 3 to 4gs banned from sale, but also its push email service and iCloud service.
Apple has now agreed to pay the licence fee that everyone else pays going forward, but no agreement can be reached for the unlicensed theft of Motorola's patents, making this more interesting is the fact that Android maker Google is currently in talks to buy Motorola.
Although the two cases only apply to Germany they may have implications for other European lawsuits. EU rules say different countries' courts can reach different conclusions, but must explain why.
