Apple’s iPad infringement case against Samsung yielded an unpleasant situation for the California company as it had to apologise to the South Korean company according to the ruling of the UK court. Apple published the apology on its UK web site, but the words did not show any regret from the company, which recently released the iPad mini and iPad 4.
Apple published the apology letter which stated that Apple products were better than Samsung’s products. The iPad design was the bone of contention between these two technological giants in the present case. The UK High court revoked Apple’s stay order on the ruling as it lost the appeal to the South Korean company.
The ruling of the High Court ordered Apple to post the apology within one week of the result and the duration of the apology was stated to be one month. In the apology, Apple elevated the status of its products and claimed that they were ‘cooler’ than what Samsung had to offer.
Apple and Samsung have been dragging each other to courts all around the world over design and software infringement issues. Apple has won some legal issues while Samsung has gained victories over few cases. The UK court ruling also meant that Apple had to remove the adverts in the newspapers which stated that Samsung has copied the design of iPad.
Samsung is yet to comment on Apple’s so-called apology letter. The Cupertino company recently released iPad mini, a 7.9-inch tablet aimed at the small tablet markets and a 4th generation iPad which features an enhanced display experience.
