Apple publishes Samsung tablet ruling on website
After months of courtroom-based bickering Apple and Samsung have laid down their swords after a judge ruled that Samsung's products were not infringing on Apple's design

Apple has today posted a statement about the Apple vs Samsung ruling as ordered by the judge, Apple will also have to publish a number of ads in certain leading UK publications where it will have to state that Samsung's products do not infringe on Apple's own designs.
The statement is suitably vague, as is expected, but does contain the vital statement which confirms that Samsung have not copied the iPad in creating their own products.
"The Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do not infringe Apple’s registered design No. 0000181607-0001."
The statement then goes on to quote the judge's ruling which includes the famous admittance that the judge thought that Apple's products were cooler than Samsung's.
The ruling only applies to the UK so while it means the end of the line for both companies here Samsung has already had to pay Apple $1 billion in damages in the US and had its products banned in Germany.
