Apple Obeys UK Court Ruling, Posts Samsung-Related Acknowledgement, Sort Of
Following a ruling in the Apple versus Samsung case the UK court has found that Samsung products did not infringe on Apple’s patents, as claimed by the Cupertino company, because, as the judge noted humorously, “they do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool.”
As an effect, Apple has to post, in its website and printed media, an acknowledgement that Samsung did not copy its products’ design — still subject to a possible Supreme Court appeal. The bottom part of Apple UK’s website hosts a small link that says Samsung/Apple UK judgement, redirecting to a page which states the above. Apple is reiterating the ruling, the “not so cool” part as well as reminding users that other courts found things to be completely opposite. You can check out the entire wording at the source link below. Those who were expecting a full-front-page apology will be disappointed!
