News: Apple violates FRAND patents, Motorola gets patent ruling, Apple's donations, and more!

Two big stories surrounding Motorola and Apple this morning, all to do with patents, injunctions, and other fun legal proceedings. The first was that Motorola was granted an injunction against a few select Apple products in Germany, and as a result, the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and 3G iPad 2 were removed from sale from the Apple online store in Germany. Apple appealed the decision, and they soon restored the sale of the affected products onto the Apple online store. The other story also has to do with Motorola, who were also granted a patent ruling in their favour over Apple's email services in Germany. Specifically, the patent ruling mentions how Apple's iCloud push email service infringes on a Motorola patent covering "Multiple Pager Status Synchronization System and Method". It's pretty unlikely that Apple will be taking this one lying down, and I would definitely expect them to appeal the decision.  

 

Apple has made sizeable donations of charity to Stanford hospitals and Project(RED), the latter of which Apple has been involved with ever since the introduction of Product(RED) products for sale on the Apple online store.
