Apple has lost its appeal against the UK court ruling which said Samsung is innocent of any copyright infringement.
A judge at the High Court in London had originally ruled in July that the look of Samsung’s Galaxy Tablets was not too similar to designs registered in connection with the iPad.
The US firm had previously been ordered to place a notice to that effect – with a link to the original judgement – on its website and place other adverts in the Daily Mail, Financial Times, T3 Magazine and other publications to “correct the damaging impression” that Samsung was a copycat.
Apple were appealing against this decision but have been told they must still place the adverts announcing Samsung has not infringed its copyright.
