Apple To Publish Notice On Its Site That Samsung Didn’t Copy The iPad

According to reports  UK Judge Colin Birss has ordered Apple To Publish Notice On Its Site That Samsung Didn’t Copy The iPad. Judge Colin Birss earlier also stated that Samsung tablets couldn’t have copied the iPad because they are “not as cool”. He also ruled that with website Apple must also publish it in Financial Times, the Daily Mail, Guardian Mobile magazine, and T3.

Later on Samsung released a statement after the hearing which said, [quote]Should Apple continue to make excessive legal claims based on such generic designs, innovation in the industry could be harmed and consumer choice unduly limited.[/quote]

Apple’s lawyer said that “The order means Apple will have to publish “an advertisement” for Samsung, and is prejudicial to the company”, Richard Hacon, a lawyer representing Cupertino, California-based Apple, told the court. “No company likes to refer to a rival on its website.”

It will be interesting to see how Apple lawyers respond and appeal this decision in the U.K.
