    Apple finally followed the UK Court's ruling forcing them to admit on their own website that Samsung didn't copy their designs, but it was basically a farce. The way they went about it was capricious and passive-aggressive. In fact, their final statement is basically a "slap in the face" to the UK court ruling. They basically confirm that the UK Court found Samsung didn't copy their designs, but then they turn around and completely refute this by pointing out their victories in Germany and the UK. Here's the full statement,

    It seems like Apple is behaving like a petulant child.

    After reading it here I checked it out on other sites to see what people were saying about it. Apple users are still fighting saying Samsung copied, I am just looking forward to seeing what happens with Samsung's appeal now that the "rubber-band effect" patent has been overturned. I hope the USPTO decides to reverse some of the other patents that they have approved.

    Nope. You were right the first time. In one part of their statement, Apple adds, "The informed user's overall impression of each of the Samsung Galaxy Tablets is the following. From the front they belong to the family which includes the Apple design; but the Samsung products are very thin, almost insubstantial members of that family with unusual details on the back. They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool."

    It's subtle, but they are basically taking a jab at Sammy's tab.

    What did you expect from the iSheep? I have to admit, as much as I would love to see the Apple trolls banned, some of them are just so delusional it makes for a great laugh when I am bored.

    As for Samsung copying Apple, while similar in ways, I don't believe Samsung copied Apple, unless you count blunders like apple's pattern for rounded edges. In the end, who cares what Samsung truly copied/stole. Wasn't it the late Steve Jobs who quoted Picaso as saying "Great artist steal." I don't recall exactly what Apple stole off hand, but this has to be the biggest double standard to ever grace the net. Apple can blantly admit to stealing, and the iSheep could care less. However, if some one "steals/copies" something from Apple, the company should be burnt to the ground to never return, and every penny the company has available should be turned over to Apple because they can do no wrong no matter what the late Commander in Chief says.
