Apple’s print apology ad to Samsung appears

Apple’s first court-ordered print advertisement from its appeal loss to Samsung has appeared, and it certainly doesn’t resemble a typical Apple ad. Gizmodo UK posted a copy of the extremely plain and arguably difficult to read ad, which appeared on page five of The Guardian today. The ad dryly states that Samsung’s Galaxy tablet computers do not infringe on Apple’s “Community registered design No. 0000181607-0001” — the iPad is not mentioned by name.

This is in sharp contrast to the snarky notice of legal judgment Apple posted online. That notice has been pulled from Apple’s U.K. site, by court order, and it should be replaced shortly.

Updated Nov. 5: Apple published the same advertisement on its U.K. website. The link notes that the previously published notice “…was inaccurate and did not comply with the order of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales.”
