Apple will appeal the UK court request to pay for ads in British media that Samsung doesn't infringe on the iPad
After losing the patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung's tablets in the UK, on the ground that Sammy's tablets just don't have that "cool" factor, the court ordered that Apple places ads in prominent media and on its website
, about the decision.
Now we learn that Cupertino has filed an appeal to that wonky "advertisement" request, and the same judge that presided over the main case will be hearing it. We don't know the final outcome, but it will be certainly fun to watch if such somewhat humiliating ads will appear in British media.
Considering the generic design sketches
Apple was basing its request on, the judges might be willing to go all the way, and strike down the appeal. The good thing that comes out of these lawsuits are all the leaks about early prototypes
, filling in the blanks on how the most successful mobile devices in recent memory were conceived.
