UK Court Orders Apple To Publish Notice That Samsung Didn’t Copy iPad

Android fanboys rejoice!A UK Judge has ordered Apple to publicly admit on it’s website that Samsung did not infringe on the iPad’s design.The notice must be put up on their website for six months and must also me published in various newspapers and magazines.The reason behind the decision was to fix the “damaging impression the South Korea-based company was copying Apple’s product”.This is seen as a huge blow to Apple as publishing a notice about a rival company on their website means free advertising.

Apple had earlier lost a lawsuit against Samsung where it claimed that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line of tablets infringed on iPad’s design.
