UK Court Tells Apple to Rewrite "Apology" to Samsung Due to Untrue Statements

UK judges to Apple: "Not good enough!"
Last week, Apple posted a
notice on its UK website
which indicated that Samsung didn't copy the iPad when it designed the Galaxy Tab family of tablets. Of course, Apple didn't do this out of the kindness of its heart -- it was
ordered to do so by a UK court
In keeping with Apple’s typical demeanor towards its competitors, the notice posted on its website was rather flippant and pointed to how the Samsung tablets weren’t deemed to be as “cool” as the iPad. Apple also pointed out in its notice that it had won judgments against Samsung in both German and U.S. courts.
It appears, however, that UK judges weren't amused by Apple's play on words, and called the Cupertino, California-based company's statements "incorrect" and "untrue".
, the U.K. Court of Appeal in London has ordered Apple to remove the notice from its website within 24 hours to correct the inaccuracies. It also has to post a new, revised version within 48 hours.
“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this,” said a puzzled Judge Robin Jacob. “That is a plain breach of the order.”
One of Samsung's lawyers, Henry Carr, piled on by starting that Apple's original notice left the “impression that the U.K. court is out of step with other courts” by mentioning the judgments in Apple's favor by German and U.S. courts.

" they already have a pile of cash so vast that they could suffer a catastrophic collapse in sales for a years and still continue their operations uninterrupted." The value of the company would suffer, just ask any shareholder. Shareholders apple cash is in the stocks they own. apple cash increases the value of their shares. If apple uses its cash and sales plummet shareholder will leave in droves.If that starts to happen apple will manipulate the market by starting to buy back their shares using their cash reserves, somewhat similar to the manipulation to keep its iphones prices high by buying back its old iphones.
