“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this. That is a plain breach of the order”…

Pretty clear that the judge was holding the order incorrectly!

More like reading it incorrectly. There has always been differences in English as practiced in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Now, there is Apple-English in addition to U.S. English.

Apple asks for 14 days to compose the apology, I think they need more than that to find a way to cheat the judges without being caught.

But I don't think they can escape without getting wet.

Be honest Apple, this is in your interests, what can be more simpler than this:

"SS, you do not copy us and we are very sory for our false accusation. We promise never do that again - Tim Cook Apple CEO signed"

In the words of Judge Dredd - "The Law? I am the Law!"

Sounds like Apple are taking that approach. They should seriously watch themselves...

Apple frequently attempted to twist logic into their own fantasy. Clearly, not everyone buys in to that sort of bs.

If Apple had shame, it would indeed be shameful. Pathetic, they took a legal decision against them and shaped it into a sales pitch??? WTF???

Next time Judge, be careful what you say in front of Apple lawyers.

Yeah, because upholders of the law should be scared of Apple who can't seem to follow a a simple order.

I was referring to the fact Apple used a direct quote from the judge and used it in their "apology" towards Samsung. I bet the judge is more upset that what he said was used in a public apology that made him look like an Apple fan.

I agree with this. Also, the judge shoulda worded what the the apology shoulda said or the context of it, if he could. I know he didnt expect Apple to still put Samsung down in the apology.

hehe...Apple like a kid and who are they trying to fool. 2 weeks for a excuse statement on a webpage? Make them pay Samsung 10 million US dollar each hour they delayed it and see if it really takes 2 weeks to do it.

Samsung would probably say forget everything if they could get their 1 billion dollars (and some change) back.

they still have yet to appeal, and with the current development of things they might actually win the case

This had to happen. Their apology was directed to poke fun at Samsung rather than say sorry and make amends. Glad that the world won't stand up to their BS, how much ever money they own.

Or maybe how biased and ignorant you are?

Did you read the "apology" that Apple wrote? The judge asked for a statement that explained that Samsung did NOT copy Apple. What did Apple write? A statement that says that Samsung did copy Apple, but the UK court doesn't think so.

Yet unfortunate... They could have taken the opportunity to fulfill in a mature and professional manner. Instead, I feel like it's my son saying "well you didn't say I couldn't"

Finally the world (some of the world) starting to see this company for what it's truly is, Arrogant-Narcissistic A-hole.

This appeal court need to be just as immature, and over turn 98% of the ruling they gave Apple.

Not sure what the court is referring to when they refer to incorrect statements. The judge did make those comments. The links are correct, the other rulings did happen. And the statement did state that Samsung did copy. I'm sure I'll get thumbed down to hell for this, but apple told the truth, even used the judges words to do so. Clever, yes. The best way to handle it? No.
