London, Oct 6 (ANI): Mobile phone maker Motorola has reportedly won a patent case against software giant Microsoft in Germany.
The regional court in Mannheim ruled that Motorola Mobility, which has been acquired by Google, did not infringe a Microsoft patent that enables applications to work on different handsets.
The verdict is the latest in a wave of patent lawsuits by technology firms fighting over market share, the Telegraph reports.
Microsoft has won three patent cases against Motorola in Germany.
As a result of these rulings, smartphones with the disputed technology are no longer available on the German market.
The paper quoted David Howard, associate general counsel at Microsoft, as saying that the latest verdict 'does not impact multiple injunctions Microsoft has already been awarded and has enforced against Motorola products in Germany.' (ANI)
