Apple lost tablet design appeal against Samsung in UK.

Apple has lost its appeal against a UK ruling that Samsung had not infringed its design rights.

A judge at the High Court in London had originally ruled in July that the look of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab computers was not too similar to designs registered in connection with the iPad.

He said at the time that Samsung’s devices were not as “cool” because they lacked Apple’s “extreme simplicity”.

Apple still needs to run ads saying Samsung had not infringed its rights. That will suck for Apple! Lets see what Apple will do in response to this.

The US firm had previously been ordered to place a notice to that effect – with a link to the original judgement – on its website and place other adverts in the Daily Mail, Financial Times, T3 Magazine and other publications to “correct the damaging impression” that Samsung was a copycat.

Anyway, Apple does not always win. =p
