    UK Judge Slaps Apple; Rules Apple Must Post on Web that Samsung didn't Copy the iPad


    Apparently, almost no judge around the world bought the malarky that Apple was selling when it claimed that Samsung "slavishly copied" the looks of the iPad. This is especially true for the U.K. Judge, Colin Birss. This is the same judge that we reported previously threw out Apple's case against Samsung, proclaiming that Samsung's tablets were unlikely to be confused with Apple's iPad because they weren't "cool enough." He has taken things a step further in his final ruling; however, and has ordered Apple to publicly state on their own website that Samsung did not copy them. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    A U.K. judge ordered Apple Inc. (AAPL) to publish a notice on its website and in British newspapers alerting people to a ruling that Samsung Electronics Co. didn’t copy designs for the iPad.

    The notice should outline the July 9 London court decision that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets don’t infringe Apple’s registered designs, Judge Colin Birss said. It should be posted on Apple’s U.K. website for six months and published in several newspapers and magazines to correct the damaging impression the South Korea-based company was copying Apple’s product, Birss said.

    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.”
    Ouch! That's like a slap in the face. Sometimes eating crow can be painful.

    Awesome!!! Hopedully US courts follow their lead. I have had enough of these frivolous lawsuits from apple. With all the money they have spent on these suits they could have developed a new cutting edge product and helped DRIVE competition in the industry, but instead they seem hell bent on HINDERING it. Shame on you apple.

    Yet they have no problem unjustly harming another company with false advertising and lawsuits? I say this is something for them to chew on for a bit.
