Disclaimers ordered into newspapers, UK website
A British judge has ordered Apple to publicly state that Samsung didn't copy the iPad, reports say. A notice will soon have to appear on the company's UK website, as well as in regional newspapers. The website notice, which has yet to go live, must stay in place for six months.
Apple recently lost a case against Samsung over the design of the Galaxy Tab. While Apple has regularly tried to argue that the Tab closely mimics the iPad's design, the judge who ruled in favor of Samsung went as far as to say the Tab was "not as cool" as the iPad, since it doesn't "have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design." Apple has, however, won injunctions against the Tab in the US and Germany.
