The advert recognises the High Court decision but hits back at rival Samsung, stating that other courts have judged that the South Korean company “willfully copied Apple’s far more popular iPad.”
Apple was ordered to post the advert after it lost an appeal last week, and it was ruled that the notice must stay on Apple’s site for no less than six months to “correct the damaging impression” left by Apple’s suit against Samsung.
In the advert, Apple implies that it does not agree with the court’s decision by stating that it has won similar cases in Germany and the US.
It goes on to say: “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.”
