The United States International Trade Commission(ITC), ban on Motorola devices goes into effect on Wednesday brought on Microsoft. In Germany, a German court denied a ban of the Motorola Xoom by Apple.
AP reported the Düsseldorf court dismissed Apple's request for a ban on the Motorola Xoom in Germany.
Meanwhile , the smartphones and tablets involved in the ITC ban are Atrix, Backflip, Bravo, Charm, Cliq, Cliq 2, Cliq XT, Defy, Devour, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, Droid Pro, Droid X, Droid X2, Flipout, Flipside, Spice, and the Xoom tablet.
Previously, Motorola licensed meeting requests from Microsoft but stopped several years ago. Motorola claims that it has a workaround.
While we can't share specific details, we have employed a range of proactive measures to ensure there is no continuing infringement under the ITC's interpretation of this single Microsoft patent," Motorola Mobility spokeswoman Becki Leonard said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
The ITC has been active in patent disputes this year, including Holding up the releases of the HTC One X/S EVO 4G LTE due to Apple iPhone infringements.
The models that are banned by the ITC were popular last year and probably not affect current sales.
