German Court Upholds Ban On Push Email In Apple's iCloud, MobileMe
04/13/2012| 04:32am US/Eastern
A German regional court Friday backed a ban on push emails in Apple Inc.'s (>> Apple Inc.) iCloud and MobileMe services in Germany, granting Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. (MMI) a victory in a global patent war among several technology companies.
The Mannheim regional court backed an earlier court decision that banned Apple from offering the service for synchronizing emails on devices in a patent proceeding brought by Motorola Mobility.
The court said Apple must pay damages to Motorola Mobility, but didn't specify the amount.
The judge adjourned a decision on mobile communication standards, which Motorola Mobility regards as standard-essential. He didn't say when the court will rule on this patent case.
