Apple just suffered another setback in its court war against Samsung in the UK. After the Cupertino-based company was ordered to issue a statement saying Samsung did not infringe the design patents, the company is now forced to pay Samsung’s legal fees on an indemnity basis.
As you might remember, Apple wrote what the court ordered them to say, but added that other courts around the world did not agree with the UK court’s decision. As expected, Apple was ordered to retract this statement and issue a new one.
Even though Apple did correct the statement eventually, the court decided Apple misbehaved. That’s why Apple was ordered to pay Samsung’s fees on an indemnity basis, meaning that all disputes over the amount of costs will be resolved in favor of Samsung (as long as the court finds the fees reasonable).
