Apple told to advertise Samsung

Written by Nick Farrell



Stop saying it copied you


A British judge has ordered Apple to take out newspaper adverts which admit that Samsung did not nick Steve Jobs' design for the iPad.

Judge Colin Birss stopped short of telling Apple to stop claiming that Samsung is nicking its patents, but it did say that it should stop saying that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets don’t infringe Apple’s registered designs.

He said that for the next six months Apple should post on its UK home page  a statement  which said that Samsung did not nick its designs. It might have to splash out on some newspaper adverts too.

Judge Birss wants to correct any impression the South Korea-based company was copying Apple’s product. Birss hit the headlines when he said that Apple could not claim that Samsung nicked its designed because the Galaxy was “not cool” enough.

As well as Apple’s website, the company must pay for notices in the Financial Times, the Daily Mail, Guardian Mobile magazine, and T3. [We'd be more than happy to run the notices free of charge. Ed]

Apple’s lawyer said the company would appeal the July 9 decision so we will not see the adverts for a while yet. With a bit of luck they will make a nice Christmas present for me and Samsung.
