Apple Forced to Give Samsung Credit on Website

Apple iPad

A UK judge ordered that Apple must post on the Apple website that Samsung did not copy the iPad. On July 9th a London court decided that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets did not infringe on Apple’s iPad design. The post must live on the Apple website for 6 months. It will also be published in newspapers in magazines to clear Samsung’s name.

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.”

Steve Jobs is going thermonuclear in his grave right now.
