Judge Cote’s ruling against Apple was upheld this past June, 2-1,
by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
At the time of the appellate loss, Apple’s press statement hinted
that it might take this step: “While we want to put this behind
us,” the company asserted at the time, “the case is about
principles and values. We know we did nothing wrong back in 2010
and are assessing next steps.”
Whatever your stance on the case, know one thing: Apple really is standing on principle here. They truly believe they did nothing wrong, nothing illegal.
