German courts have been known to provide quick and swift justice, but this is ridiculous. In their patent battles with Motorola, Apple took a huge hit when a German court issued Friday, what was thought to be permanent, an injunction banning the sales of the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, upholding a ruling from December. As a result of the injunction, Apple suspended all online sales and removed all iOS devices from its German website. The ban is from Motorola’s claim that Apple’s iOS devices with embedded 3G connectivity infringed upon one of their patents related to UMTS technology. Here is where the fun starts. Apple immediately filed an appeal and a German Appeals Court ruled in Apple’s favor and issued a temporary suspension of the injunction. “All iPad and iPhone models will be back on sale through Apple’s online store in Germany shortly” an Apple spokesperson told SlashGear. “Apple appealed this ruling because Motorola repeatedly refuses to license this patent to Apple on reasonable terms, despite having declared it an industry standard patent seven years ago.” You gotta love the German judicial system.
