Apple has won a permanent injunction against most of Motorola Mobility’s products in Germany. FOSS Patents reports that Presiding Judge Dr. Peter Guntz ruled that the products infringe on Apple’s slide-to-unlock image patent, which covers “unlocking a device by performing gestures on an unlock image”. According to the report, the court evaluated three different embodiments of the idea, two of which are implemented on Motorola’s phones—Apple won on those two—and a third which is used on Motorola’s Xoom tablet, and on which Apple did not prevail. The report states that Motorola will likely appeal the decision, at which point Apple will likely try to win on the third embodiment as well; currently, Apple would have to enforce the injunction at its own risk, by posting a bond that could be used to repay damages should the decision be reversed.
