Apple will have to run apology ads

Apple and Samsung have been tied up in a UK court for quite some time following Apple's allegations that Samsung infringed on its patents with the design of the Galaxy Tab. Apple may have won a massive jury verdict against Samsung in the United States after Samsung was found to have infringed on patents having to do with smartphones, but the same can't be said about tablets in the UK.

The judge presiding over the appeal case in the UK has stymied Apple and upheld the original ruling. The original ruling stipulated that Apple had to run advertisements in certain papers and magazines to "correct the damaging impression" that Samsung is a copy.

The appeals judge did not overturn the decision to force Apple to run apology ads. BBC reports that the judge noted, "Because this case (and parallel cases in other countries) has generated much publicity, it will avoid confusion to say what this case is about and not about.”

The judge also stipulated that Apple has to add a link titled "Samsung/Apple judgment" to its homepage for a one-month period linking to the apology. Other apology ads are to be placed in the Daily Mail, Financial Times, T3 Magazine and other publications.

Reuters reports that Apple does have the right to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. It remains unclear at this time if Apple will appeal again.

"I expect this will be the end of the line. An appeal to the Supreme Court is in principle possible but there has been no indication so far that Apple plan such an appeal," Darren Smyth partner at EIP, a specialist intellectual property law firm, told Reuters.

"For the design of tablets in Europe this should be the final word."

Investments don't pay off instantly. Google took a hit from the Moto acquisition. Only time will tell if this pays off, even if people like Tony have a crystal ball that INSTANTLY predicts failure.

However Apple's long term strategy, if it can be called one, is apparently sitting on large cash mountains and not making acquisitions and investments they could easily afford. Those lawyers truly ARE well paid!

Just a little extra proven fact done by reseachers that crApple fanatics use the iProducts to boost self-esteem and validate themselves.

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Apple-Store-iPhon...

MarketWatch contacted a few market researchers who provided a look into why Apple fans, or indeed any consumer, will wait for hours (or days/a week) when they can easily pre-order the device online and get it delivered to their doorstep.

Researchers say that consumers benefit from building their social activity such as making friends and boosting one's self-esteem.

"Shopping has become a collective event," consulting firm Hanft Projects' Adam Hanft said. Hanft added that when people witness the amount of eager shoppers standing in line along side them, it reassures them that their decision to buy the product in question is a correct one.

Is any of this directed at me? I have only one account on DailyTech (feel free to get Jason to verify).

I don't really see how talking about Apple fans has any relevance, either to me (given that I currently only own 1 Apple device - and that's a Macbook Air which I run Windows 7 on) or the fact that my original point stands - anyone who takes joy with the success or failure of corporation is an irrational fanboy.

To Tony, Apple is more than just a company he has a vested interest in spanning decades. To Tony, Apple is a member of his family. When this member of his family is insulted or is hurt, Tony storms in to defend it, using Apple's latest financial figures to prove their popularity. Because those financial figures mean absolutely everything to us, and suddenly make out current devices much more inferior.

Tony's undying love for his family member causes him to become butthurt when the truth is revealed. He prefers to circumvent the issue, throw a cloak of ignorance over it, and continue to post that Apple is the leader in this popularity contest.

Tony doesn't realise, that for most of us here, the popularity of Apple, its financial figures, or its products mean squat to us. Of course, how can hundreds of millions of people be wrong? Well, simply ask that question to a religious person when referring to an opposing religion. Or ask an Atheist who would claim billions of people are wrong. My point is Tony is confusing popularity with righteousness and superiority.

Keep fighting the good fight, Tony. I'm sure your dearest Apple cares deeply for you too.

The bold part is not strictly true. The Galaxy Tab was found to be infringing one of Apples utility patents and was included in the damages calculation.

The second part of your sentence is correct - on the design patent issue the tab was cleared (pending appeal) in the US.

Yup the US jury didn't follow the court orders, One didn't know anything about patent law but owns patents and told lies to the other jurors. Another was a relative of large stock holders in Apple. These people wanted to punish Samsung when the court instructions clearly stated that only actual damages could be found. They never took into account any prior art because it was too confusing... Thus Samsung has a very strong case in appeal or getting the case ruled a mistrial.

"It's sad to see how the same claim can lead to two completely different outcomes."

Well, one of them was done in the Silicon Valley, just miles from Apple HQ, and the local judge ruled out vital evidence so the local jury couldn't see that Samsung already had the designs a year before exposure to Apple's designs...

However, the US system, flawed as it is, does have a balanced appeal system, so when the appeal of that case makes it to a higher court it will get a fair trial.

Correct. Samsung has now won against Apple's iPad copying claims in both the U.S. and EU.

The big judgment against Samsung in the U.S. was only for smartphones. And that's the evidence Judge Koh disallowed due to a technicality (Samsung submitted it after the deadline for evidence). Basically the jury found that Samsung copied the iPhone because Samsung wasn't allowed to submit internal documents showing the phone(s) they were working on prior to the iPhone's release.

Apple even used the F700 as evidence that Samsung was copying the iPhone, when in reality Samsung had come up with the F700's design prior to the iPhone's release. That's why Samsung's counsel said what's the point of having the trial if that evidence was withheld. Both companies arrived at similar designs independently. Unfortunately the jury never got to see that due to the technicality.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_SGH-F700

I won't go so far as to say the U.S. judgment against Samsung is sure to be overturned (nothing is guaranteed in the legal system). But if it isn't, it's going to be obvious to anyone carefully following the case that there's been a great miscarriage of justice.

Incorrect.

The big junction was not 'only for smartphones' it incorporated damages for a utility patent which were infringed on the Tab. Also, the evidence which was disallowed from Samsung was disallowed because it was irrelevant, not because it was late.

It was an internal chain of Apple emails which Samsung was trying to use to claim that Apple copied Sony.

However, Apple was able to trivially disprove its relevance (even before the fact that talking about what a competitor MAY do is not the same as copying them), by proving that they had created the iPhone design before the Sony mockup THEY CREATED ever existed:

http://cultofmac.cultofmaccom.netdna-cdn.com/wp-co...

The F700 can be trivially distinguished from the Samsung phones which were actually found to be infringing, a good explanation for dummies is here:

http://peanutbuttereggdirt.com/e/custom/Apple-vs-S...

This directly shows why the F700 is irrelevant as it can trivially be distinguished from the infringing phones.

Your conclusion is also ridiculous, you use a series of incorrect premises which even if correct wouldn't mean anything about the decision, and then make claims about what informed people would conclude? Talk about irony.

Its a sad thing when a company creates a product that no one else has on the market and then gets slammed for trying to protect it
I assume that you think that there should only be 1 maker of any product in the market, or the first to make a go of something should have total control over anything similar? You might even have a point if Apple were the first company to make a tablet computer.

I have no problems with companies using patents to protect their products, as it's only fair to them, encourages investors to put money into products knowing that their investment will be protected if it works out, and it also forces other companies to innovate as we've seen with Android in the mobile phone sector, which Apple is now copying from themselves.

The thing is. Apple didn't invent the tablet and weren't the first company to bring it to market, and when they start suing over hand held rectangular object with rounded corners (like playing cards, credits cards, mobile phone have been for years and Sat-Navs) then, IMHO, they deserve to get slammed themselves and it's pretty sad that people are so short sighted as to fall for the Apple's claims, hook line and sinker.

Yes, they were the first to make a major success of tablets, but that's largely because those who made them before were (arguably) ahead of their time. Trying to make them work before screen, battery and processor tech all matured to the level that was needed, which had little do with Apple.

You'd make a great businessman with an attitude like that. There are 60 million people in the UK. That's a big market to pull out of because you don't like that a court ruled against you.

It would also be horrible publicity for Apple. They'd be telling the world that if they don't like their laws, they won't do business with you. As the UK is a member of the EU, you can be pretty sure they'd taker notice of such behaviour and Apple would risk losing a very, very large market.

Moral of the story; if you do business in a country, you follow their laws. Don't act like a butthurt teenager when someone rules against you, as you'll end up going out of business with that attitude.

If you want that, then Apple wouldnt be allowed to make any smartphones, because they copied the whole smartphone idea from Palm and RIMM.

Remember to add in a small fact. Samsung made alot of the parts needed for the Iphone. So I am taking a wild guess but if you had to make things to fit in a "rectangular" device, you would need to know the dimensions.

"It's okay. The scenarios aren't that clear. But it's good looking. [Steve Jobs] does good design, and [the iPad] is absolutely a good example of that." -- Bill Gates on the Apple iPad
