Apple wins preliminary injunction against Motorola smartphones and tablets in Germany

According to a report fromб═PCWorld, Apple has been awarded a preliminary injunction against a number of Motorola smartphones and tablets in Germany. The court has ruled that Motorola infringes upon Apple-owned patents with theб═Motorolaб═Milestoneб═XT720, the Motorola DEFY, the Motorola Atrix, and the Motorola XOOM.

Apple is asking Motorola to release sales numbers for those specific devices in the country so it can calculate damages, and is also asking the court to destroy any affected devices that are currently unsold.

Motorola will likely be appealing the decision and could go around the infringement by issuing a software update.
