Judge Finally Pays Attention in Court: Apple Forced to Clean Up the Mess it Created


Remember that article I posted a few days ago that talked about Apple taking the law into their own hands and trying to force retailers to stop selling the soon-to-be banned Galaxy Tab 10.1?  Well it appears that British judge I mentioned at the end wasn’t just going to stop at calling the Galaxy Tab totally not cool.  Apparently, now the judge sees fit to make Apple think about what they just did, kind of like when your parents put you in the corner to think about why you locked the cat in the microwave.  The judge has ordered Apple to post an official statement on their website and in several local newspapers, letting everybody know that Samsung did not try to copy the iPad in design, with the website portion having to stay up for a minimum of 6 months.  Unconfirmed reports (from me) state that Apple is debating posting these reports in the “Jobs” section of the newspaper.  Hit the jump for more of the same information that I just gave you.

Apple is being forced by a British judge to state explicitly that Samsung didn’t copy its iPad design. According to Bloomberg, Judge Colin Birss said that Apple has to post a notice both on its website and several British newspapers and magazines, to help correct the “damaging impression the South Korea-based company was copying Apple’s product.” The online part will reportedly stay there for six months. Apple lost its case against Samsung in the UK earlier this month, with the same judge awkwardly branding the 10-inch Android tablet “not as cool” as the iPad.

See? I told you it was the same info.  Don’t worry, there is more info in the actual source link.  Anyway, back to what I was saying.  So I’m not sure why they keep making fun of me.  It’s not like my clothes are that bad looking, right? I have a fairly good sense of fashion!  Oh…whoops. “Chatting with your therapist again?” My mommy.  And she says hi.
