BERLIN (Reuters) - A German court has put a nation-wide sales and production ban on Ford cars able to establish internet connection, it said, as part of a lawsuit over the violation of wireless technology patents.

The verdict by the Munich regional court is not legally binding and can still be appealed, it said, adding a 227 million euro ($240 million) security payment by the plaintiff, Japan's IP Bridge Inc, was required for it to become "provisionally enforceable".
