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.

This is not hilarious. It's just fair.

The cost to stifle competition through the courts is probably less than allowing the competition to compete in a fair marketplace.

When the patent violations are determined to not exist, there should be some consequences for accusing another company. Maybe this will make companies *think* before lobbing accusations over the wall to see what sticks.
