Apple to Advertise for Samsung
John Gruber on the recent UK court ruling that Apple must take out advertisements to “correct any impression” that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets copied the iPad:
I can’t figure out how Apple will play this one. They have to comply with the law, but, I just can’t see Apple paying for ads that even mention Samsung, let alone doing so in a way that absolves them of copying the iPad.
It’s a stretch, but maybe Apple spins the Galaxy Tab as an inferior product because it doesn’t copy the iPad? For example:
It’s official: the court has ruled that the Samsung Galaxy Tab doesn’t copy the iPad.
Sorry, Samsung – better luck next time.
It would even be reminiscent of those “Redmond, start your photocopiers” banners that Apple displayed for Mac OS X Tiger’s introduction at WWDC.
