Apple Inc. was ordered by a judge to publish a notice on its U.K.
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 today. It should be posted on
Apple’s U.K. home page for six months and published in several
newspapers and magazines to correct any impression the South
Korea-based company was copying Apple’s product, Birss said.
I can’t figure out how Apple will play this one. They have to comply with the law, but, I just can’t see Apple paying for ads that even mention Samsung, let alone doing so in a way that absolves them of copying the iPad.
