“Apology” Didn’t Cut It; Apple Ordered to Really Apologize

Last week, we told you about Apple’s creative “apology.” We expressed our opinion that Apple failed at following the order from the UK Court of Appeals. The court felt the same way, and has ordered Apple to correct their statement within 48 hours. It must be in at least 11-point font instead of the small text used by Apple and ON the front page rather than a linked page as Apple attempted to do. They called the statement Apple posted as “untrue” and “incorrect” and were, to put it lightly, quite displeased. Judge Robin Jacob had this to say about Apple:

“I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this. That is a plain breach of the order.”

Apple’s lawyers said that it would take at least 14 days to comply with the order and requested that timeframe, to which the Court denied and had this to say in response:

“I would like to see the head of Apple make an affidavit setting out the technical difficulties which means Apple can’t put this on” their website, Jacob said. “I just can’t believe the instructions you’ve been given. This is Apple. They cannot put something on their website?”

What also appears to be missing are the newspaper adverts that Apple was ordered to place, but no mention of them were made by the Court. We’ll have to stay tuned to see what else turns up in this now mind-boggling case.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary
