Apple’s “Samsung didn’t copy the iPad” UK notice stayed
If you remember, about a week back we reported to you that a UK Court ruling had asked Apple to publicly state that Samsung did not copy the design of iPad.
And today we hear that Apple has been successful in obtaining a stay on that court ruling of July 9th and for now will not have to publish any notices on neither its websites nor any of the publications that the order had ordered.
A London court today granted the stay on Apple’s request and has postponed the order until October this year, when the Cupertino based tech giant will have a chance to appeal it.
Earlier the order was issued by Judge Colin Birss went on to order Apple to publish a notice on post on its website and a number British newspapers stating that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab do not infringe on Apple’s iPad design.
But for now Apple DOES NOT have to do anything like that and buy ad spaces in major publications like the Financial Times, the Daily Mail, the Guardian, Mobile Magazine and T3 magazine and publish the statement “in a font size no small than Arial 14 on a page earlier than page 6.”
Interesting to see where these patent wars lead the companies, industry and the consumers to!
