Legal Why oh why does big news always break when I'm already in bed? This is a big one, guys: Motorola has been granted an injunction in Germany against Apple, which, as far as we can tell right now, covers Apple's entire portfolio of mobile products. Motorola can enforce this injunction, barring all of Apple's mobile products from the German market. In addition, Apple has to pay Motorola damages from 2003 and onwards. Update: Apple has responded (see Engadget article linked to above): "This is a procedural issue, and has nothing to do with the merits of the case. It does not affect our ability to sell products or do business in Germany at this time." At this time huh? Huh.

Engadget is wrong. Legal doc says April 19, 2003.

All of which is in the article, except for Apple's statement since that came out when I was in bed.

So.... I'm struggling to see the point in your attack on me.

Are we reading the same document? It's page 6 item B.II. Translated very literally (and therefore unpleasant to read):

It is determined that the defendant is required to compensate any damage to the indicter that Motorola Inc. from May 20th 2002 up to July 30th 2010 and the indicter since July 31st 2010 by actions of the defendant according to number B.I.1.a) and/or B.I.1.b) has happend or will be happening.

The two dates represent the naming "Motorola Mobility Inc." (indicter) and "Motorola Inc." (which is not identical by name here, even though it's the same company), that's why the date span and the two dates.
