A British court docket, in line with Bloomberg Apple must submit discover that Samsung design didn’t copied the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Indeed, the British court has ruled in favor of Samsung on Wednesday in a case of copyright infringement on the two companies regarding the design of the iPad. British court decided to sentence Apple to bring up a note, for 6 months on its website (apple.com / uk). A note in which the U.S. giant has to mention that Samsung has copied in any way the design of the iPad. According to the same source, this information must also be published in national newspapers.

In practical terms it means that Apple six months a message on the Apple UK website to place. There must also be published in the British newspaper, a message that indicates that Apple iPad has not imitated Samsung. Apple can still appeal against the decision.

The message that Apple should publish must meet the following conditions:

The notice should outline the July 9 London court decision that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets don’t infringe Apple’s registered designs, Judge Colin Birss said. It should be posted on Apple’s U.K. website for six months and published in several newspapers and magazines to correct the damaging impression the South Korea-based company was copying Apple’s product, Birss said.

Apple is obviously not happy with the decision. Richard Hacon, a lawyer acting on behalf of Apple is involved in the case, told the court: "No company would like to refer to a competitor's website."
