Apple must run adverts in the UK press and leave a message on its website for at least six months to say that Samsung did not copy its iPad design.
This ruling was made earlier in the year, but Apple has now had its appeal rejected, meaning the decision stands.
No matter how many times I read it, the statement of companies arguing over “a tablet design with a rectangular shape and rounded corners” will never stop sounding ridiculous. Hopefully we will start to see more cases of common sense prevailing in the courtroom (where possible).
This is a good victory for Samsung, following the ruling in Apple’s favour in a US court this summer that proposes that Samsung pays Apple $1.05 billion in damages for infringing on several of its patents. This decision is however due to be appealed.
