Apple loses appeal in UK case against Samsung
Apple lost its appeal in London's High Court and will have to publicly apologize to Samsung for suggesting the Korean company copied Apple, according to a report in AppleInsider. Apple must take out advertisements in local newspapers and place a notice on its website that states that Samsung did not copy Apple.
Earlier this year, Apple was handed a setback in this patent infringement case against Samsung when Judge Colin Birss ruled that Samsung's Galaxy Tab was not infringing. Birss said that Samsung's Galaxy Tab is "not as cool" as the iPad and added that customers are not likely to mistake the iPad with the Tab. As part of his ruling, Judge Colin Birss ordered Apple to publicly apologize to Samsung, a decision that Apple unsuccessfully tried to appeal.
