Are Apple in contempt of UK court?

When Apple lost their UK court case against Samsung, the judge mandated that they should have to host a statement on their website to “correct the damaging impression” given by Apple that Samsung had copied their tablet.

Apple have now done this – their UK website has, in the smallest of print, a link labelled “Samsung/Apple UK judgement” leading to this page:

http://www.apple.com/uk/legal-judgement/

However, rather than sticking to what they were told to print, Apple also detail their more successful German and US court cases, concluding: “So while the U.K. court did not find Samsung guilty of infringement, other courts have recognized that in the course of creating its Galaxy tablet, Samsung willfully copied Apple’s far more popular iPad.”

I don’t think this is what the judge had in mind. In fact, they have repeated the allegation which is at the foundation of the “damaging impression” they had been instructed to correct. On their UK website.

This could be interesting.
