Design Motorola Xoom schendt niet Apple’s iPad patent

Een Duitse rechter heeft vandaag geoordeeld dat Motorola met haar “populaire” Xoom tablet geen inbreuk maakt op de merkrechten van Apple’s iPad. In het specifiek gaat het dan om het design van de iPad.

De Duitse rechter is dus van mening dat de Xoom niet lijkt op de iPad.

Fox News legt het verder als volgt uit:

  • Apple initially sued Motorola for allegedly infringing three iPad designs with the Xoom. It sought to have the device banned across Europe.
  • Although the judges ruled Motorola’s Xoom doesn’t infringe on the iPad, the court rejected a counterclaim brought by Motorola alleging the iPad’s design patent is invalid, a spokesman for the court said.
  • As the court ultimately rejected both parties’ claims, it ordered Apple to pay two-thirds of costs and Motorola to pay a third, the spokesman added.
  • […] During two hearings prior to the ruling, the presiding judge had indicated the court was leaning in Motorola’s favor. Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hofmann said in March that the court considered the evenly bent back and shaped edges on the front of the Xoom tablet sufficient to give the product individual character.
