Apple Could Force Motorola to Destroy Devices

2 Mar

Oh patent wars, is there any mellow you can’t harsh? A German court just ruled in Apple’s favor on a patent that could, theoretically, force Moto to destroy a bunch of its devices. My crystal ball says that won’t happen.

The court found that Motorola Mobility infringed upon EU Patent No. EP2059868, which is the way that photos kinda bounce back when you’re zoomed in on them and you over-scroll. FOSS Patents says that that the ruling could force Moto to throw tons of phones onto a pyre and set them ablaze:

If Apple enforces the ruling, it can even require Motorola to destroy any infringing products in its possession in Germany and recall, at MMI’s expense, any infringing products from German retailers in order to have them destroyed as well.
