Cloud Computing: Apple Wins Second Injunction Against MMI

If Apple enforces it, MMI will have to destroy all the implicated widgets in its possession and recall those out in the channel

Apple Thursday won an injunction in Germany against all Motorola Mobility devices that infringe a photo gallery patent.

If Apple enforces it, MMI will have to destroy all the implicated widgets in its possession and recall those out in the channel. That currently means the Xoom tablet and two smartphones.

The FOSS Patents blog says MMI's only recourse is to modify the Android operating system, drop the zoom-in feature and degrade the user experience. MMI successfully defended the zoom-out mode.

It's the second injunction Apple has won from the same Munich Regional Court against Motorola in the last two weeks, making Apple's score two for two.

It'll cost Apple a 35 million bond to enforce both injunctions.
