Apple apologizes to Samsung. Sort of...
Apple has posted the apology to Samsung ordered back in July in the United Kingdom.
The UK Court's ruling that Samsung do not violate the iPad design, forced Apple to make an apology to Samsung, which must be visible on Apple's website and in the newspapers.
So Apple did. The company posted the apology on its webpage, and you can guess it is not an apology at all.
The statement says that the UK Court has ruled that Samsung's Galaxy tablet do not violate Apple's design patent but no mention on the words "regret" or "sorry".
The apology continues to point out that Galaxy tablet did not copy the iPad because is not cool, quoting the UK judge that stated that Samsung's devices does not have the simplicity of Apple's designs.
Apple also points out that in other countries in Europe Samsung has been found guilty on copying the iPad, the statement says that in Germany, the court found Samsung guilty and the US court accused the company in unfair competition awarding Apple $1 billion in damages.
Apple added that while the United Kingdom Court did not found Samsung guilty of violation, other courts did.
