This is a stupid ruling. Of course Samsung copied apple. Just look at the phones pre iPhone and post iPhone. You can argue apple can't sue them for copying, because every successful product is going to get copied! And you can argue the patent system is broken, you can argue apple is scummy for trying to kill competition in court, but to deny Samsung copied them is patently stupid.
The court ruling was specifically about the look of the tablets and whether Samsung producing a rectangular tablet with rounded corners, a different aspect ratio, a completely different back, a different interface, different button placement, a black face and the word "Samsung" on the front was copying Apple.

The judge ruled it wasn't. You should also note that the US jury also ruled in Samsung's favour on this (tablet look).

The upshot is that while Samsung may have copied elements of the iPhone, and have been penalised for it, Apple have to stop claiming the generic look of a rectangular black tablet (for which there is convincing prior art).

This 'run adverts' ruling came after the trial, as Samsung objected that Apple had continued to claim that Samsung were copying even after the court had ruled that they weren't. The judge agreed that there should be some redress to alert the public to the ruling and came up with this rather novel way of doing so.

It would have been better if the court ruled that Apple had to give us all of their money.

Apple ordered to correct the statement within 2 days and place it on their main web page. Apple lawyers tried to argue they would need 14 days to update their website but were bitch-slapped by the judge.

Oh less than an hour I'm sure.

Getting the statement approved through the bureaucracy of a large corporation is another matter. 14 days actually isn't bad for that.

Apple has found a great way to make hay out of this judge's stupidity. By the time they do run the ad that is compliant the only thing people will remember is what a joke the whole process turned out to be. I love it.

So far, it looks like Apple is the stupid one for willful disobedience to a court order, and unquestionably arrogant to even try such an ignorant stunt.
