UK judges want Apple to re-write Samsung statement


LONDON (AFP) - US tech giant Apple has until Saturday to re-write an "inaccurate" statement relating to its patent dispute with South Korean rival Samsung, British judges have ruled.

A British court forced Apple on October 18 to post a message on the company's website stating that Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers had not infringed the design of Apple's iPad.

But Samsung complained that the message did not comply with the court order because it included comments on other rulings in Germany and the United States which had favoured Apple.

On Wednesday, senior judges agreed and told Apple to take down the statement within 24 hours.
