UK Judge orders Apple to run ads saying Samsung ‘did not copy iPad’

The Apple vs. Samsung war going on in courts all over the world saw a rather interesting turn of events yesterday.

UK judge Birss ordered Apple to put out advertisements in various newspapers and magazines stating that Samsung “did not copy iPad”. Additionally, Apple has to post a notice on its website for at least six months stating the above.

Apple has filed an appeal to the UK court. However, it’s unlikely to have any success since the same judge will be hearing it. Mind you, this is the judge who previously stated that Samsung tablets aren’t “as cool” as the iPad and that they do not have the “same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design.”

The legal battle between Samsung and Apple still continues in the US, where the preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is still standing. Regardless, it’s going to be extremely interesting to see how the case will turn out and whether Apple will indeed have to post ads which will undoubtedly cripple their ego a bit.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
