Galaxy Tab Stlll Banned in the U.S., U.K. Judge Orders Apple to Publish Embarrassing Ads
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab will remain absent from U.S. retailers after the company’s latest attempt to get a preliminary ban failed.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied Samsung’s request to to suspend the preliminary injunction against its tablet that Apple won last month. The judge denied Samsung's request to expedite an appeal regarding the decision as well. Earlier this month U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh denied Samsung’s request that the injunction be suspended until the court makes a decision in the case between Apple and Samsung. The trial doesn’t start till July 30th, meaning the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be subject to the ban at least until the end of the trial.
However, Samsung can sleep easier knowing that a U.K. Judge ordered Apple to begin advertising that Samsung did not copy their product. Yes. Judgje Colin Birss ordered Apple to publish a notice in several newspapers, magazines, and on Apple’s website informing consumers of the court’s decision that Samsung’s designs are not in fact copying Apple’s products.
I imagine Apple find a way to wiggle out of that one, if not produce ads that take subversive shots at Samsung while meeting the courts requirements.
