Another day, another lawsuit. Apple is also suing Motorola in Europe over the Xoom tablet’s design, reports “FOSS Patents” (http://macte.ch/4yTnD).
Prior to or simultaneously with the motion for a preliminary injunction against Samsung over its Galaxy Tab design, Apple also filed a complaint with the same court over the design of the Xoom, the article notes. That passage says that Apple filed with the same court (district court of Düsseldorf) a complaint over the design of the Motorola Xoom, but it doesn’t state whether that complaint included a request for a preliminary injunction.
“While it’s not stated explicitly, I suppose that the complaint against Motorola also asks the court for an EU-wide injunction — but perhaps just for a permanent injunction without a previous preliminary one,” says Florian Mueller, writing for “FOSS Patents.”
