Apple 'must say on website that Samsung didn't copy iPad'

Apple must reportedly publish an announcement on its website stating that Samsung did not copy the design of the iPad.

The ruling follows last week's decision in the UK high court* where a judge deemed Samsung's tablets were not *cool* enough to be confused with the iPad. The judge said Apple's notice should be published on its website and in newspapers and state that the Galaxy tablet range did not infringe Apple's registered designs, according to Bloomberg. The announcement must remain in place on Apple UK's homepage for at least six months.

Richard Hacon, a lawyer for Apple* hit out at the ruling made yesterday (18 July). He said the order amounts to *an advertisement* for Samsung. He said: *No company likes to refer to a rival on its website.* Apple said it intended to appeal the decision and Judge Colin Birss gave the manufacturer permission to take the case to the Court of Appeal.

Patent disputes between manufacturers are happening around the world, with the likes of Apple, Samsung, HTC and Google accusing each other of copying designs and technology.
