Apple Ordered to Confirm Samsung Did Not Copy its IPad Design

Apple has been ordered by a UK High Court Judge to take out a series of newspaper advertisements confirming that Samsung did not copy its iPad design.

The decision stems from a ruling last week, when Judge Colin Birss said that the Samsung device could not be compared to Apple’s as it lacked the necessary “cool factor”. Following that slightly pyrrhic victory for Samsung, Apple reiterated its position that Samsung had copied its designs.

It would appear that the Judge was not too impressed with Apple’s public comments contradicting his ruling, so added a further declaration following a complaint by Samsung.

Although the Judge declined Samsung’s request banning Apple from making its comments on the grounds of free speech, he did rule that Apple should post a notice on its UK website for at least six months confirming the original ruling, and it has to post similar messages in several national newspapers.
