The Mannheim court in Germany has upheld the earlier ruling that Apple infringed on Motorola's patents

It looks like German citizens will have to go without push email via iCloud and MobileMe services.

Back in February, a German court ruled that Apple's iCloud and MobileMe services infringed on Motorola's European Patent (EP) 0847654 (B1), which covers a "multiple pager status synchronization system and method." The trial began in November 2011.

The push email services have been disabled since the February decision, and now, the Mannheim court in Germany has upheld the earlier ruling that Apple infringed on Motorola's patents. 


In addition to the ban on Apple's iCloud and MobileMe, Apple was ordered to pay an unspecified amount to Motorola in damages.

German Apple users will now have to manually retrieve email on their devices. Apple has offered some advice on how to set up gadgets to manually retrieve email on its support page.

The ruling is a pretty big blow to Apple, considering Motorola creates Android-powered devices.

Also, Apple has been battling other Android-powered gadget makers like Samsung over in Germany and around the world for some time now. Last year, Apple launched a lawsuit against Samsung claiming that the Android supporter was an "iPhone, iPad copycat."

Since then, the two have flung lawsuits back and forth throughout 2011 and 2012. Apple managed to successfully ban Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany and Australia, but eventually lifted the Australia ban. Samsung later created a new Galaxy Tab 10.1N, which can be sold in Germany, but the original version remained banned.
