Apple Accused Of "Hiding" Samsung Apology

Nov 4 2012, 5:56am CST | by

Gee, surprise, surprise

Apple was required by a judge in the UK to post an apology on its website, but as you might expect in this kind of situation, it didn't exactly make the apology front and center.

There have been many victories for Apple when it comes to the unfolding epic legal saga with Samsung. However, in the UK is actually lost in the controversial case about the Galaxy Tab 10.

Judges in the United Kingdom found that Samsung did not copy the design of the iPad for its own Android-powered tablet. In addition to ruling in Samsung's favor, the judge required Apple to submit a public apology.

Well, here was that supposed apology:

"In a case tried in Germany regarding the same patent, the court found that Samsung engaged in unfair competition by copying the iPad design. A U.S. jury also found Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple's design and utility patents, awarding over one billion U.S. dollars in damages to Apple Inc. So while the U.K. court did not find Samsung guilty of infringement, other courts have recognized that in the course of creating its Galaxy tablet, Samsung willfully copied Apple's far more popular iPad."

Judge Robin Jacob called that explicit non-apology a "plain breach of the order." Jacob ordered Apple to rewrite the apology within 24 hours, but Apple said it would need 14 days. That angered the judge so much that now he has ordered Apple to place a notice on its website saying it failed to comply with a legal ruling, along with the original apology that it submitted to the court.

Of course, the apology is buried in fine print on the company's website so it didn't really do much good.
