Of course, if you read the source material then you'll also find that the patent is on included in the FRAND arrangements that set payments at a fair and reasonable level which Motorola have done with existing licensees but in Apple's case wanted to charge them far higher than other licensees... guess what, Apple were not happy and have consistently tried to arrange fair licensing in line with the rates others are charged... and this is only the start of things being the outcome of one regional court in Germany (which, contrary to some views, isn't Europe just part of it) and has absolutely no legal effect in the rest of Europe, there are many more years of legal action and happy lawyers to come...
