You're right, Samsung has no reason to mock Apple. It's not like Apple sues them at every possible opportunity or anything...

Apple can say that Samsung tablets are not cool everywhere they want EXCEPT in the legal notice that the cour ordered them to put in their homepage

They care whether Apple follow the court's decision.

I agree but you have to admit if they didn't get any kind of approval, that was a pretty dumb move. Samsung is a blatant copier, but Apple shouldn't stoop to their level even if it is hilarious.

take a step back:

Samsung copies Apple

Apple sues

Samsung crys and sends out mocks

Apple sends out mock

Who started it?

As most people here, I'm no lawyer. But anyone can see that Apple's "acknowledgement" was incredibly cocky, so I'm not surprised.

"That is a plain breach of the order."

No, actually, it's in precise compliance with the order. Perhaps the judge should have specified the exact text if he felt so strongly about particular wording. He didn't, and apple compiled with what he ordered. The judge was sloppy and he knows it.

Sorry but when exactly did a legally required notice become an advert in any shape or form?

Classic Apple right there.

The Judge and his stupidly inane "forcing" Apple to write that deserved it, as did shady Sam(e)sung's blatantly cheap and second-rate Apple iPad knockoff.

Apple did what Samsung and that Judge deserved. He actually SAID THAT SAMSUNG'S PRODUCT WASN'T "COOL" ENOUGH TO BE AN IPAD IMITATOR!!!! Thus Samsung made such an inferior product, it couldn't even live up to being the knockoff that it intended to be.

No, you're the one that has said that they put those additional paragraphs on the homepage following the legal departement advise.

The original July ruling's Schedule 1 and the October appeal's ruling that modified Schedule 1 disagree with you. The court had ordered a very simple statement with a link to the judgement.

Apple tried to be "playful" and now it's backfired. I wonder if the posters here that bashed Samcraig and Oleteros in the other thread and argued ad nauseum that Apple was "in the right with their statement" are going to apologize for all the name-calling now ?

(Of course not, anti-Apple troll/haters don't deserve apologies, even when they were right! Let's all just spin this into something where Apple is always right and does no wrong).

Apple should just tell the UK Court of Appeal to shove it.

The government won't let it get out of hand - alienating Apple is the last thing that's good for the British economy.

Apple complied with the order and quoted what the proceedings consisted of. Someone got butt hurt, boo-hoo.

As a previous poster said the UK justice system is very inconsistent and unbalanced.

They specified the exact text.

Any of you have read the actual ruling?

If Apple is above the law, then so should Samsung or any other corporate entity. Are you suggesting that countries should not have laws that govern the behavior of corporations ? No IP laws, no tax laws, nothing at all to prevent corporations from abusing either citizens or other corporations ?

Corporatism, the new form of government.

Yes, because telling the courts to shove it would be a fantastically intelligent move. Afterall it worked for News Corp when they had that little problem with the News of the World. Oh...wait a second...


Look, we're talking about a notice that has to be displayed on a page for 30 days - it's not going to kill Apple to just follow the damn law.

stupid court, but I would expect that in the UK.

Samsung clearly copied the design. You must be blind to not see it.
