Apple snipes at Samsung in U.K. court-required ad

Although Apple was ordered by a U.K. court to publicize a finding that Samsung’s Galaxy had not infringed the iPad’s design, Apple used the opportunity to take a few jabs at its rival, as well as to undermine the international value of the court’s findings. The company posted a page quoting the judge’s original ruling, noting that the iPad “is a cool design” while the Samsung Galaxy tablets “are not as cool.” Added to the end of the court-required disclosures are Apple’s court victories over Samsung in Germany and the U.S., concluding, “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.” Posted as a link at the bottom of Apple’s U.K. website, the entire statement can be read here.
