Apple loses patent case against Samsung, Motorola in Germany
London: A German court has dismissed tech giant Apple’s claims that Google-owned Motorola and Korean firm Samsung infringed some of its multi-touch patents.

The Mannheim court rejected Apple’s allegations that the two firms had copied how its devices handled data according to how many fingers touched a gadget''s screen.

According to the BBC, the Mannheim case is one of several patent trials Apple is involved with in Germany.

The iPhone maker filed separate legal claims against Motorola, now owned by Google, and Samsung over what are known as ‘touch event’ technologies.

According to the report, rather than examine Apple''s claims separately, the German court brought both cases together and issued a joint verdict.

Now, Apple has one month time to appeal against the court''s decision.

This is not the first time that Apple has also lost a case on the ‘touch event’ patent.

The California-based firm lost a case against Taiwanese mobile maker HTC in the UK over the same technology.
