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.

I wonder how prominent the notice must be - maybe it will end up among the most cost-effective advertisement campaigns, for Samsung?


Unfortunately, if the previous Italian ruling about insurance is anything to go by (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/01/27/apple_italy/), this won't be the full page Samsung advert you're hoping for!

When the Italian courts required Apple to post a notice on its website, it was apparently covered by the highlighted link text you can (just about) see here:

It'd be great if the message had to be made really clearly, but as with newspaper retractions and corrections, they always seem to end up being a little disappointing!
