German Court Upholds Ban on Push Email in Apple’s iCloud and MobileMe

For those of you who reside in Germany back in February, the push email function for Apple’s iCloud and MobileMe was suspended with the hopes of a turnaround. The case which involved a patent litigation by Motola Mobility has apparently hit another speed hump today. A German regional court backed the ban on push emails used in Apple’s iCloud and MobileMe services in Germany and granted Motorola Mobility Holdings a victory in a patent war that spans globally among several technology-based companies. The service that performs synchronizing of emails on devices was contested by Motorola. The Hannheim regional court stated that Apple is to pay damages to Motorola but did not specify the amount. The judge adjourned a decision on mobile communication standards, which Motorola reportedly regards as standard-essential. He didn’t say when the court will rule on this patent-related case.
