Apple v. Samsung battle it out in the U.K. courts
If you're told by a court to do something, you'd better do it or face contempt of court charges -- no matter how big or powerful you may be. Samsung prevailed in a lawsuit brought by Apple in the U.K., which dubbed Samsung's tablets as "not as cool" as the iPad. Apple was told to publish a statement on its Web site stating this, as a result of the tarnished image suffered by the Korean technology giant as a result of bringing the failed lawsuit.
So, Apple did. But Apple embellished the court-ordered statement with additional detail that riled the court. It then re-ordered Apple to include an 'apology' at the bottom of its U.K. Web site explaining that it had stuffed up the first time around.
