A U.K. Judge is upset with Apple for posting an 'untrue' and 'incorrect' notice about its litigation with Samsung over the iPad, reports Bloomberg.

Apple was forced to publicly state that Samsung did not copy the iPad; however, the judge clearly wasn't happy with the statement and ordered the company to replace it within 24 hours.

“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this,” Judge Robin Jacob said today. “That is a plain breach of the order.”

Samsung says the notice created the “impression that the U.K. court is out of step with other courts."

Apple said the notice “is not designed to punish, it is not designed to makes us grovel. The only purpose is to dispel commercial uncertainty.”

Apple is now forced to add a three sentence note on its homepage in acknowledgment of “the incorrect statement,” with a link to a new notice.

You know, when the majority of comments aren't from followers of the site, but from paid shills for other companies, it really makes this site hardly worth reading anymore. Unfortunately, it still had decent information about Apple products, but the comments section has become a joke!

Personally, I've consistently thought this one judge was overreaching into areas that the law doesn't support just to prove he wasn't favoring Apple. There's no judicial reason for requiring a comment that has nothing to do with the underlying lawsuit.

Lol this is hilarious.... Why the hell does a major corporation have to say "I'm sorry" to another one in a legal battle? Is this kindergarten ?
