Germany has been the site of quite a few patent battles between Motorola and Apple in the past, and there’s another crater on the landscape over there: One of the High Regional Courts in that country has made a decision on Motorola’s ongoing challenge against Apple over push notifications, saying that a motion by Apple to try and suspend an injunction by Motorola attempting to keep Cupertino from using iCloud over there has been denied.
In other words, Motorola is free to continue its battle to try and prevent Apple from using push notifications. Not great news for Apple, and not bad news for Motorola.
Motorola is obviously trying to keep Apple from using iCloud and push notifications in Germany, claiming that it already owns the patent on that technology. FOSS Patents has a more complete rundown of what’s going on if you’re tracking the legal maneuvers.
