Apple's UK website to go unchanged pending appeal
Apple has won a small but significant court ruling in one of its legal battles with Samsung, Bloomberg reports. In the UK a London court has ruled that, at least temporarily, Apple won't have to post a notice on its UK website announcing an earlier ruling, in which the courts found that Samsung didn't copy the design of the iPad with the Galaxy Tab. Arguing against the notice, Apple had claimed that it didn't want to advertise for a rival company.
The notice is currently on hold until October, when Apple's appeal against the Galaxy Tab verdict will be heard. Samsung's victory was unusual, as Apple has typically had the upper hand in its lawsuits against the company. Some versions of the Galaxy Tab have in fact been banned in some countries, if normally just on a preliminary basis.
