Apple has won another injunction against Motorola for infringing on patent EP2059868, a 'portable electronic device for photo management'.

FOSS Patents notes that "if Apple enforces the ruling, it can even require Motorola to destroy any infringing products in its possession in Germany and recall, at MMI's expense, any infringing products from German retailers in order to have them destroyed as well. Motorola Mobility will undoubtedly be able to keep selling its products in Germany by modifying its operating software."

Motorola has announced via BGR that they've already taken steps to get around the ruling.

Today's ruling in Munich, Germany on the patent litigation brought by Apple concerns a software feature associated with performing certain functions when viewing photos in a 'zoomed in' mode on mobile devices. We note that the Court ruled that performing the functions in a 'zoomed out' mode does not infringe on this patent. We expect no impact to supply or future sales as we have already implemented a new way to view photos on our products that does not interfere with the user experience.
