Legal "A judge in Britain is forcing Apple to publicly acknowledge that Samsung didn't copy the iPad, according to a report by Bloomberg. A judge has ordered Apple to post a notice on its website and in British newspapers highlighting a recent ruling that Samsung didn't copy the iPad. Apple must leave that notice up on its website for the next six months." Apple can still appeal this decision, but I'm hoping it'll be denied. This is just too hilarious not to go through.

Negative advertising is also illegal, btw.


I don't think this is true. I believe the standard in most countries is whether its false, deceptive, and/or misleading. For example, I'd say the "I'm a PC, I'm a Mac" campaign was a negative ad campaign in the commercial context. Negative ad campaigns in the political context are way too common. But, political ads I believe are regulated differently than commercial ads.
