Apple's public apology to Samsung is anything but apologetic

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

Apple 0

An anonymous reader writes "In the UK recently judge Colin Birss decided Samsung’s device designs weren’t confusing to the consumer when compared to Apple's because they are “not as cool.”

Judge Birss went further though, demanding Apple apologizes to Samsung publicly for all the hassle caused by the lawsuit. Apple predictably appealed that decision, but failed and therefore has to run the apology on its website. That apology has now appeared on Apple's website, but it’s anything but apologetic.

The last paragraph may cause judge Birss some upset, however, as it points out both German and US courts decided Samsung was engaging in unfair competition under the same patent and had copied the iPad design. In other words, Apple has taken the opportunity to call out the UK judge as making the wrong decision."
