A court in Germany has ruled that Apple has infringed on streaming patents from OpenTV, who are owned by Swiss company Kudelski.
The case was filed against Apple by OpenTV back in 2014 and the German Court has now said that Apple has infringed on three streaming patents from OpenTV.
The devices which apparently infringe on the patents include the iPhone and iPad, the Apple TV, OS X Mac’s and Apple’s App Store, Apple will either have to stop selling these devices in Germany or find a workaround.
Apple is expected to appeal the ruling by the court in Germany, the same company previously sued Netflix over similar patents and the two companies agreed a settlement, it is not clear on whether Apple will do the same.
