Apple has been forced to pay for Samsung's legal fees in the UK, after an appeals court decided the Cupertino firm's first public statement
on the tablet copying ruling was "false and misleading." Having failed to convince a UK court that Samsung had copied its iPad design for its own tablets, Apple produced a passive aggressive statement that, while hosted on its UK site as per the judge's instructions, also cited international court decisions that described Samsung products as "uncool" copies. Now, despite having replaced that original statement
- which supposedly had more than 1m hits - with a toned-down version, Apple is being made to pay
Samsung's costs in penance.
