Motorola gets back at Apple

After Apple won the battle with Samsung over patent disputes, it recently lost a patent battle with Motorola. A German court granted an injunction against sales of many of Apple's 3G-bearing products, including older model iPhones and the iPad. 

Motorola wants to settle the dispute by exchanging for 2.25 percent of Apple's sales. It's unclear whether this is a percentage of all Apple revenues or, more likely, a percentage of sales of devices which contain a 3G antenna and therefore potentially fall under the umbrella of Motorola's patent claims. 
Revenue from iPhone sales, in aggregate since 2007, amounts to just under US$93 billion. Motorola's cut of those revenues would have been nearly $2.1 billion over those years.
