Apple must publicly admit 'Samsung didn't copy iPad,' rules judge
London, July 19 (ANI): Apple must put out a notice on its website to publicly admit that Samsung did not copy the iPad design in its own tablets, a judge has ruled.
According to a Bloomberg report, Apple has been asked to put up the notice for six months acknowledging the recent ruling against Apple's claim that Samsung had copied its iPad design.
The company must also put an announcement in several newspapers and magazines, the report said.
According to The Telegraph, Richard Hacon, Apple's lawyer, said the order was prejudicial because the company was being forced to publish 'an advertisement' for Samsung.
"No company likes to refer to a rival on its website," he told the court in London.
According to the paper, Apple is expected to appeal against the ruling.
Last week, Apple lost its case, at the High Court in London, in which it had claimed that the Galaxy Tab 'slavishly copies' the design of the iPad.
The court, however, dismissed Apple's claim on the basis of two key differences between the Galaxy Tab and Apple's tablet.
First, the court said the Galaxy Tabs were significantly thinner than Apple's iPad. Second, the detailing on the back of Samsung's tablets was distinctive and unusual. (ANI)
