A German court has ruled that the Motorola Xoom tablet does not infringe on an iPad design patent held by Apple, reports Fox Business.

Apple initially sued Motorola for allegedly infringing three iPad designs with the Xoom. It sought to have the device banned across Europe.

Although the judges ruled Motorola's Xoom doesn't infringe on the iPad, the court rejected a counterclaim brought by Motorola alleging the iPad's design patent is invalid, a spokesman for the court said.

Since neither side won their alleged claim, the court ordered Apple to pay two-thirds of costs and Motorola to pay a third.

The three patents Apple says are being violated: the devices use electricity, the devices have mass, and people use them.
