Apple Claims to Lose $2.7 Billion in Motorola Lawsuit

Motorola Mobility was awarded a temporary injunction over infringing on its intellectual property against Apple earlier this month. The imposed injunction can result in prohibiting Apple from offering its products in the location where it is granted.

Motorola has also charged Apple Germany with infringing cases in the court. It is important to note here that Apple doesn’t event offer its products in Germany, but the lawsuit is already there. There is a common perception that any negative response from the court can result massive financial loses to the Cupertino-based company.

According to Bloomberg, Apple has announced in a statement that the outcome of the lawsuit could cost company as much as $2.7 billion. The tech giant has even asked for settlement of amount that it bears in the course of entire event to overcome the damages while seeking an appeal.

Motorola Mobility is suing Apple over the patents regarding email syncing. Apple, on the other hand, is firm on the point that it has not infringed on any intellectual property:

“Apple lawyers told the court that the technology it uses isn’t covered by the Motorola Mobility patent as filed. The methods described in the patent were also already in the public domain when the patent was filed, they said.”

Apple’s legal team has already been on the winning side for recent few months where it has won many infringement cases against Korean electronic giant Samsung in multiple countries. However, the results of the current case would be interesting, if we consider Google’s intentions of acquiring Motorola along with all its owned patents.
