Motorola claims latest legal win against Apple
Another day, another court case for the technology giant.
Motorola has managed to win a permanent injunction in Germany against Apple’s iCloud. This follows a complaint that Motorola filed in April 2011. The decision from Judge Andreas Voss was to issue an injunction against the cloud based service along with any devices that use it.

The European patent covers a “multiple pager status synchronization system and method". What this implies is that Apple could continue the iCloud and MobileMe, but the push e-mail service would have to be deactivated. This service notifies users when they get new mail. The alternative is to set a client to check for new iCloud or MobileMe mails and pull them, which is what a client such as Outlook does.

This is the latest in a series of on-going legal battles between the two companies and another decision that Apple is on the wrong side of. While this decision is permanent, it is still “preliminarily enforceable”. As a result, it is likely that Apple will appeal the decision. Apple is also embroiled in a legal battle with Samsung, but has won both cases thus far.
