A UK court recently ordered Apple to publish a statement on its UK site and UK media outlets that Samsung did not copy its iPad design. Apple, as a display of its arrogance, used that opportunity to further bash Samsung.
We covered in details how Apple cherry picked cases to tell its UK users that Samsung did copy its design. Apple's language gave an impression that " the U.K. court is out of step with other courts" Samsung said in it's filing with the court of appeals.
Apple even had the audacity to mention the infamous US case where the jury in fact gave a verdict that Samsung Galaxy Tab did not violate any of Apple design patents. The US judge even ordered the ban to be lifted and Samsung was free to sell the tablet in the US. You can read the whole coverage of how Apple mentioned such cases in the statement.
Guardian reports that "The court has now ordered it to correct the statement – and the judges, Lord Justice Longmore, Lord Justice Kitchin and Sir Robin Jacob, indicated that they were not pleased with Apple's failure to put a simpler statement on the site."
Judge Jacob said, "I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this. That is a plain breach of the order."
Apple's arrogance doesn't end here. The company requested 14 days to make the changes. Wow. Why would a company need 14 days to make changes to it's own site? Typical Apple.
Judge Jacob did not buy this and rejected the request stating, "I just can’t believe the instructions you’ve been given. This is Apple. They cannot put something on their website?"
