Apple to promote the message that Samsung did not copy iPad in UK


The same judge who ruled that Samsung Tablets were not as cool as the Apple iPad has now ruled that Apple would have to promote the message in the UK market that Samsung did not copy the design of iPad in their own Tablet PCs.

As per the reports, Apple would have to put this message on their UK website for a period of six months. They would also have to deliver this message to the consumers through regular channels like major newspapers in the UK market.

The order means Apple will have to publish “an advertisement” for Samsung, Richard Hacon, a lawyer for Cupertino, California-based Apple, told the court. “No company likes to refer to a rival on its website.”

Apple Inc. (AAPL) was ordered by a judge to publish a notice on its U.K. website and in British newspapers alerting people to a ruling that Samsung Electronics Co. didn’t copy designs for the iPad.

As well as Apple’s website, the company must pay for notices in the Financial Times, the Daily Mail, Guardian Mobile magazine, and T3, according to a draft copy of the order provided by Samsung’s lawyers.

Apple’s lawyer said the company would appeal the July 9 decision and Judge Birss granted the company permission to take its case to the court of appeal.
