In those other jurisdictions, the US jury, while finding for Apple with regard to phone patents, actually ruled in Samsung's favour on tablet design. In other words, on the matter in the UK court case, the US jury agreed with the UK judge.

And in Germany, while Apple won a preliminary injunction, a) it should not have been granted as under EU law the UK court took precedence, and b) a preliminary injunction is not the same as going on to win the case.

So, neither in the US nor in Germany did Apple win a court ruling that Samsung's Tab copied the iPad's design.

Do you see now why Apple's statement, while brilliantly worded, and true in every word, was nonetheless highly misleading and thus did not do what was ordered, i.e. to 'correct the damaging impression' that Samsung had infringed Apple's design patent?

Not really. Mostly, I just think it's funny.
