Apple loses its UK appeal motion, forced to run ads that Samsung did not copy its iPad design

0. phoneArena 18 Oct 2012, 05:31 posted on

That is the same judge who jokingly acknowledged that Samsung's tablets aren't considered as "cool" as the iPad, so Apple can't claim they copy its design directly. The joke turned on Apple at the appeal now, though, as Cupertino will have to run ads in various newspapers and magazines with national reach now that Samsung wasn't found infringing on its patents, and also leave a similar message on its website for six months...

Apple shouldnt have to follow their unprofessional judgment. I wouldn't poke fun at a company that has more cash reserves than many countries combined.

no, you just poke at the idiots that keep paying their 60% mark up on devices to get very minor upgrades nearly every year. They are super rich because the world is filled with idiots.

oh... look.. here's one now.. hey Mxyz

No dude, take the carrier subsidization out of that and they actually pay 314% mark-up. It costs approximately $207 US to manufacture the iPhone and they retail it for $649.99 unsubsidized. Remember a lot of these idiots that stand in line for days on end don't have upgrades available and just buy it at retail. AT&T and a lot of other U.S. carriers stopped doing early iPhone upgrade thing.

What does cash reserves have to do with them losing a case or appeal? And this vs losing money......it might be a bit embarrassing but it doesnt hurt your pockets as much.

Where do you think our "professional judgement" came from? Yeah the UK. Their judges probably have 10 times the integrity ours do. Ever heard of looting after a decision is handed down in Britain?

If you feel that Apple should follow "their unprofessional judgement" then why don't speak up and say bad, when Apple is out trying to sue people for copyright infringement. Should other companies not say anything and just disregard the judgement(s) that Apple gets? Yeah silence that's what i thought

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuny

Now the beauty of it.

Samsung takes pictures of all the advertisements and screenshots of the website to every trial in the world they are doing battle with Apple. "Look Judge, Apple admits we didnt copy them.. why are they suing us!?"

Lawsuit over.

Submitted for evidence in the retrial of the Judge Koh presided case in California: UK newspapers clearly stating Samsung did NOT copy Apple.

Samsung defense rests.

Know what dude?
Cupertino should also post the ad for 6 months on Mxyzptlk's 4-5 inch real estate situated on his forehead as it belongs to Apple.

No surprise here the UK judges when it comes to patents etc actually care more about the consumers and have common sense.

Screen shots of the ads and website will be live throughout reddit and Google Plus within twenty four hours after Apple complies, I bet. I'm looking forward to this.

Also loling at Mxy's statement that you don't mess with a rich company like Apple. Are you threatening the UK courts on Apple's behalf, Mxy?
