Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (Left) and Apple’s iPad 3 (Right)

If you’ve been following the news lately surrounding the case between Samsung’s Galaxy Tab and Cupertino-based tech behemoth Apple, then you’re probably aware that Apple wasn’t so lucky in the U.K. Earlier this month, we reported that U.K. Judge Colin Birss ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets aren’t ”cool enough” to be confused with Apple’s iPad. Albeit that might be a bitter pill to swallow for Samsung, Apple also took a dose of its own medicine when the U.K. Judge forced Apple to publicly acknowledge that Samsung didn’t copy the iPad.

But it looks like Apple has been spared this time from public humiliation. That’s because a London court has ordered a stay on the posting notice today following Apple’s appeal that it didn’t want to advertise for its rival. Bloomberg writes that the order is stayed until its appeal against the ruling is heard in October. Judge Birss previously ordered Apple to publish ads informing people in the U.K. that Samsung did not copy Apple’s design. He also previously ruled that the notice has to stay up on Apple’s website for at least six months.
