The patent in question pertains to a “multiple pager status synchronization system and method,” and Motorola claims that Apple’s iCloud-enabled iDevices are guilty of infringing on it. Mannheim Regional Court agrees.

With regards to the latest ruling, Team Cook says: “Apple believes this old pager patent is invalid and we’re appealing the courts decision.”

As for the disappearing iDevices, a statement reads: “While some iPad and iPhone models are not available through Apple’s online store in Germany right now, customers should have no problem finding them at one of our retail stores or an authorised reseller.

“Apple is appealing this ruling because Motorola repeatedly refuses to license this patent to Apple on reasonable terms, despite having declared it an industry standard patent seven years ago.”
