Yes, it was rather bizarre that they trusted Apple not to play childish games. The court should write the statement themselves, and specify the exact size, font specs, and position on the front page of Apple's website, as well as the exact date and time the statement must appear and the date and time when it is to be taken down. the court should also reserve the right to approve any of the other items that are to appear on Apple's website during that time to avoid that Apple displays any content contradicting the statement. What was the judge thinking that Apple would behave like responsible adults?
