In a surprising twist of events, it looks like Apple hasn’t won one of its many lawsuits against Samsung. In fact, it’s been being punished instead. According to reports online, Apple has been ordered by a judge to post a notice on its website and in several British newspapers and magazines stating that Samsung didn’t copy the iPad. If that wasn’t enough – the judge also ruled that the notice has to stay up on Apple’s website for the next six months. Talk about public humiliation!

We’re not sure what the notice is going to say, and whether Apple is going to comply directly or try to be snide about the announcement, but this ruling is pretty funny regardless of whether you think Samsung copied Apple or not. I guess this means free advertising for Samsung especially in the UK. We’ll keep you posted if any news of Apple’s notices surface online.
