    Apple Slapped by UK Court; Given 48 Hours to Rewrite Samsung 'Apology'



    Just last week Apple posted their online "apology" letter to Samsung. They were ordered by a UK court to acknowledge that Samsung did not copy their designs and ordered to host it on the homepage of their website. Unsurprisingly, the letter they posted was hard to find, and was written in a snide and condescending manner. Rather than sincerely acknowledging what the courts asked them to, they talked about how the Samsung tablets were "not as cool" as the iPad, and they also included references to their other victories across the globe in which Samsung was found to have copied. They even published the statement on an unbranded page with a small link from the homepage. This was basically a slap in the face to the UK court's ruling, and it seems that the court is not too happy about it.

    The UK court just found that Apple was in "non-compliance" and ordered them to create a new statement that complies with the order. Apple complained that they would need at least 14 days to draft such a letter, but the judges basically slapped that argument down. Judge Jacob said he "cannot believe" that it would take that long. He also said, “I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this. That is a plain breach of the order.”

    Apple's 14 day request was denied, and they were given 48 hours to comply with the order. They will also have to leave the new statement on their home page until December 14th, and they must publish notices in U.K. newspapers and trade magazines with details of the ruling.

    They were told to have a statement ON their front page, not just an obscure link. When it's up I may actually visit the Apple website for the first time ever, lol!

    Yes! Their "apology" was not an apology at all...instead was an insult to the courts and Samsung. Part of the problem was the court ruling only stated that Apple had to "acknowledge" the UK ruling which only had to be via a visible link on their home page. The link was buried in tiny print at the bottom of their home page and the "acknowledgement" was a short statement followed by long paragraphs touting their victories in USA and German courts.

    Love it!
    I like to watch debates, especially when they're fair!
    Another definition of ghey: When a self appointed "referee" decides to join a "debate" (that's okay) but then decides to end/close the "debate", only because both sides have valid points & he/she just can't win and/or doesn't want to hear the other opinions any longer...

    Sorry, I only check/subscribe to threads that I've started, not all the ones I've posted in , PM me instead.

    Please use correct medical terminology. That sad affliction is properly termed "Rectocranial Inversion Syndrome" or RIS as it is sometimes abbreviated.

    Apple forgot the key word. Judge. Don't cross a judge. Their godlike arrogance withstands very little, if any, disobedience in most cases
