Less than a month after a U.K. court forced Apple
to add a court judgment to its U.K. website, Apple has now been forced to remove "untrue" elements of the statement.
Apple was criticized by U.K. judges in a lawsuit with Samsung for posting a notice on its website that was "untrue" and "incorrect."
"I?m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this," Judge Robin Jacob said today, according to Bloomberg. "That is a plain breach of the order."
The U.K. Court of Appeal in London reportedly ordered Apple to remove the statement within 24 hours and place a new notice acknowledging the inaccurate comments.
Last month the same court had ordered Apple to post the initial notice as part of a ruling that Samsung's Galaxy tablets had not copy the design of Apple's iPad. Apple was ordered to post online a notice to correct the impression that the Samsung was copying Apple's product. However, Apple post added four paragraphs including excerpts of the original "cool" ruling and details of similar German lawsuits that the court today said weren?t true.
According to Bloomberg, the U.K. Court of Appeal in London ordered Apple to remove the statement within 24 hours and place a new notice acknowledging the inaccurate comments.
