UK judge rules that Apple must run ads stating Samsung didn't copy the iPad design

Mea iCulpa

Product: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 | Manufacturer: Samsung

Ten days ago, Judge Colin Birss ruled in a UK court that Samsung's line of Galaxy Tabs does not infringe Apple's tablet design patents.

In a follow-up to this ruling, Judge Birss has ordered Apple to publish a notice on its UK website which states that Samsung did not copy The Big A's registered designs. This advertisement must run for six months.

Bloomberg reports that, in addition to advertising Samsung's innocence on its own site, the Cupertino-based company must cough up for similar ads in a number of British newspapers, The Guardian's Mobile magazine, and tech website T3.

Victory by design

Samsung won the tablet patent case based on Judge Birss's decision that the the Galaxy Tab series "[does] not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool."

Despite its victory, however, Samsung was unable to prevent Apple from making public statements reasserting its grievance regarding the design of the Galaxy series.

According to the judge, the folks over at Apple are "entitled to their opinion".

One of the, unfortunately, few victories of common sense.
