Apple has been criticized by U.K. judges in a lawsuit with Samsung for posting a notice on its website that was “untrue” and “incorrect,” reports “Bloomberg” (http://macte.ch/63U6z).
The U.K. Court of Appeal in London ordered Apple to remove the statement within 24 hours and place a new notice acknowledging the inaccurate comments. Apple was ordered by the same court last month to post the initial notice as part of a ruling that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets didn’t copy the design of the iPad.
Apple did just that on its UK website, but also included the judge’s statement that Samsung devices are “not as cool.” A link to the text-only addition to Apple’s website can be found in the footer of its U.K. page. The link is entitled “Samsung/Apple UK judgement.”
The court’s initial order to post a notice was designed to correct the impression that the South Korean company was copying Apple’s product, notes “Bloomberg.” This is all part of the ongoing, global legal battle. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
