Does this mean Apple has to stop selling iPads and iPhones in Germany? It’s not clear yet.

What’s more interesting, and what I couldn’t stop thinking about when reading this, is: wouldn’t it have been cheaper for Apple to just have bought Motorola and shut it down? Disregard DOJ and anti-trust concerns — think about the money Apple is spending to fight patents against Motorola and the potential loss of sales if they lose. I would think it would have been easier to just buy the company (hostile takeover if needed) and shutter it.
