As directed by a UK court, Apple has published a notice on its UK website, stating that the court has ruled that Samsung did not copy the iPad while designing its Galaxy tablet.

“On 9th July 2012 the High Court of Justice of England and Wales ruled that Samsung Electronic (UK) Limited’s Galaxy Tablet Computer, namely the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do not infringe Apple’s registered design No. 0000181607-0001,” writes Apple.

Besides stating that simple fact, Apple takes great care to quote the most embarrassing (for Samsung) parts of the court’s decision, including the one that explicitly states that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is “not as cool” as the iPad.

In a final act of defiance, Apple also mentions the fact that the courts in Germany and the U.S. decided differently.

“However, in a case tried in Germany regarding the same patent, the court found that Samsung engaged in unfair competition by copying the iPad design. A U.S. jury also found Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple’s design and utility patents, awarding over one billion U.S. dollars in damages to Apple Inc. So while the U.K. court did not find Samsung guilty of infringement, other courts have recognized that in the course of creating its Galaxy tablet, Samsung willfully copied Apple’s far more popular iPad,” concludes Apple.source:
