Apple alters apology to Samsung on their UK site to comply with court order

Apple's recent apology to Samsung on their website was found to be unsatisfactory by the UK courts. They had since removed the statement from their website and have posted a reworded version that's also appearing in newspapers in the UK.

After ruling that the statement on Apple's site was non-compliant with the order, Apple was ordered to re-write the statement and present it on their website in at least 11-point font. It's now appearing on the bottom of their UK website.

On 25 October 2012, Apple Inc. published a statement on its UK website in relation to Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers. That statement was inaccurate and did not comply with the order of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. The correct statement is at Samsung/Apple UK judgement.

The statement can be found at the very bottom of the UK Apple site and also includes a link to more information on the judgement.
