British Judge Colin Birss has ordered Apple (AAPL) to put a notice on its Web site for six months and in U.K. newspapers saying that Samsung (SSNLF.PK) didn't copy the design for the iPad. Birss is the same judge who ruled last week that Samsung couldn't have committed such sins, as its tablet is "not as cool" as the iPad.

    Interesting. There is a cost of aggressive legal pursuit.

    Hopefully, Apple will include the good judge's comment (Samsung tablet "not as cool") in the notice!!

    The judge is obviously trying to attract attention to his own persona.

    Whatta doofus. Love to see that posting say; "We at Apple can say with great confidence that the baffoons at Samsung are so lame that they are even incapable achieving our level of 'coolness' through thievery and therefore, could NOT have copied our design for the iPad."

    Isn't this the same judge that said Apple had the right to express it's opinion when it denied Samsung from getting an injunction on iPad sales due to the harm from Apple's comments? He can't have it both ways. Or can he?

     

    I agree with banjo man. This guy is nuts. Apple will not have to post anything on it's website after they win the appeal of this decision.

    It appears that although the people from the U.K. think they are more intelligent than us because they sound better when they speak but the Olympics, JP Morgan shutdown of the London office and the infamous shutdown of Sir Paul McCartney and the Boss just shows that they really aren't except for hopefully Scotland Yard!

    This is what I want to say but somebody already has something like this. The judgment should have made Apple say the whole thing of the judgment that Samsung could not copy the ....... and that be more appropriate because the Apple statement would be only capricious made by the subhuman judge, whose name is Birss. The judge should only issue what his finding on the topic of suit, unless Samsung demands that the judge issued some regulatory relief on Samsung behalf and I do not belief that the judge was told to do so by the original belief.

    Does Apple get to exercise free speech and compose the phraseology?
