Apple has to say that Samsung’s Cool

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab vs Apple’s iPad

 

News out yesterday from the UK is that a Judge presiding over one of the numerous Apple vs Samsung Patent disputes found that Samsung did not copy the design of the Apple iPad with their Galaxy range of tablets.

The judge presiding over the case Colin Birss found that the product were distinguishable from each other and he even went as far to say the Samsung designs weren’t as distinctively “cool” as the iPad.

“[The Galaxy tablets] do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool,” Birss said

The judge went even further that just finding in the favour of Samsung, He then ordered that Apple must issue a notice stating that Samsung did not copy its design for the iPad.

Apple’s statement must be published on its UK website for six months and be distributed throughout several British magazines and newspapers, Bloomberg reports.

The order means that Apple will essentially have to run advertisement for Samsung in the UK, a move that may be inherently bad for business. “No company likes to refer to a rival on its website,” Apple lawyer Richard Hacon told the court.

Apple has been involved in a number of Patent dispute throughout the whole most notably with arch rival Samsung.  Currently disputes are unsettled in Germany, the Netherlands and the U.S. Earlier this month  Apple were reported to have paid a cool $60 million for the “iPad” name in China.
