If that were correct we would hear about all losing court cases in newspaper ads. This is different, Apple gave Samsung a bad reputation (copycats), and it turned out it was unfounded; it could be considered libel. Hence, they have to repair the damage done.
Too bad the same common sense does not apply to all courts.
