Apple's new apology gets published

Apple wasn't happy at all about being forced by courts in the UK to issue a written apology to Samsung to be ran in major newspapers and on its own website. The apology had to state that Samsung did not copy Apple designs. Apple's "apology" was more the little tongue-in-cheek noting that the Samsung tablet was said to not be "as cool" as the iPad and Apple pointed out that it had won judgments against Samsung in Germany and the US.

The judge overseeing the case in the UK said that Apple's statements were "incorrect" and "untrue." Apple was directed to rewrite the apology and remove the incorrect original notice.

“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this,” said Judge Robin Jacob. “That is a plain breach of the order.”

The rewritten apology is now appearing in publications within the UK. Apple had told courts that it would take up to 14 days revise and publish a new statement, but one the judges in the case refused to believe the claim.

Actually, the UK judge on the appeal referenced in the apology took a shot at Germany's court. The German court didn't even have jurisdiction to grant any injunction. From Lord Justice Jacob's order:

quote:
56. Firstly I cannot understand on what basis the [German] Court thought it had jurisdiction to grant interim relief. I do not think it did [have jurisdiction] for several reasons.

And he goes on to criticize their reasoning:
quote:
61. … I regret to say that I find the Oberlandesgericht's reasoning on the merits sparse in the extreme….

62. What the Oberlandesgericht did not do was to consider Judge Birss's decision in detail. It gave only meagre reasons for saying "The Court cannot concur with the interpretation of the High Court". I regret that. …

63. … If courts around Europe simply say they do not agree with each other and give inconsistent decisions, Europe will be the poorer.
