Apple Won’t Have To Advertise For Samsung Yet…

Apple recently lost a court battle in the U.K. over Samsung allegedly stealing the iPad’s design. Because of this Apple would have to publish a notice on their U.K. website declaring Samsung’s innocence. Apparently that’s not going to happen yet…

Apple was granted a delay on advertising for arch rival Samsung, until their appeal is heard in October. Bloomberg reported on the recent extension. I knew Apple wouldn’t give up without a fight. How could they possible advertise for Samsung…

Bloomberg reports:

Apple Inc. won’t immediately have to publish a notice on its U.K. website that Samsung Electronics Co. didn’t copy its iPad tablet, a London court ruled today.

Apple was ordered earlier this month to put a note on its U.K. site and buy advertisements in British newspapers to alert customers to a court ruling that Samsung hadn’t copied the iPad’s design. Cupertino, California-based Apple appealed saying it didn’t want to advertise for its rival. The order is stayed until its appeal against the ruling is heard in October.

If Apple’s appeal is rejected they’ll be forced to put up notices in British newspapers and on the U.K. Apple website.
