Apple Earns Delay on Publishing Notices Acknowledging Samsung Did Not Copy iPad
Apple of course appealed the ruling that it must publish those notices, which were to remain on its UK website for six months, and Bloomberg now briefly reports that Apple has been granted a stay on that requirement until an appeal is heard in October.
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.More information on the stay may yet be forthcoming, but it appears that Apple will have significant time to put forward its arguments attempting to convince a separate court that the notice requirement was an improper part of the verdict.
