Last April Motorola filed a lawsuit against Apple which was originally targeted at MobileMe, but after iCloud was released they said MobileMe was “integrated” into iCloud. The lawsuit is related to European Patent 0847654 (B1), entitled "Multiple Pager Status Synchronization System and Method."

Today, Apple lawyers claimed that the technology Apple uses isn’t covered by the Motorola patent and that the methods described in the patent were also already publicly accessible when the patent was filed. Sadly, according to FOSS Patents, the court was in favor of Motorola and did not appear to believe any of Apple’s arguments.

The final decision is not held until February 3, 2012, but it’s not looking good for Apple. Apple has asked the court to set a bail of 2 billion euro if they lose the case though the court said, “I am not yet entirely sure that amount adequately mirrors the commercial value of this dispute,...The technology isn’t a standard and there are alternative ways to provide the same services.”

If motorola do indeed win, Apple could be forced change the method of synchronization or remove access to iCloud in Germany.

Apple wouldn't sue if others didn't copy. Apple is just protecting their intellectually property and rights
