Florian Mueller is reporting that Motorola has been barred form enforcing their rights to standards-essential patents. This means that Motorola (read: Larry Page), will not be able to seek an injunction against Apple while the current crop of legal cases is ongoing (which could take a year or more). Mueller raises the question of whether this is worth it for Google anymore, and whether they should just drop Motorola and pay the $2.5 billion break-up fee. That’s nice thinking, but it is not going to happen.
