Apple Wins German Patent Case Against Motorola Mobility

Apple Inc. (AAPL) won a Munich court ruling against Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. in a case over patents protecting photo-management on mobile devices.

The ruling held that only the “zoomed in” mode in viewing photos on mobile devices infringed a patent, not the “zoomed out” mode, Motorola Mobility said in an e-mailed statement. The company doesn’t expect the ruling to effect future sales as the company has already implemented a new way to view photos, Motorola Mobility said.
