  Which part of "Subject to anything that may be submitted" did Apple not understand?  Seems pretty obvious to me.   And with that one statement you've killed off what little credibility you had in this thread. Do you seriously think you know more about English law than an English judge?
  What about the fact the German case they mentioned hasn't reached trial yet but they implied the German court had made a final decision?    Or bringing the US case into it where the Tab was actually found to not have infringed?   Apple's original statement implied that the UK decision was contrary to both of those decisons when it fact it wasn't.
  Judge's comment:       Which part of:   "Subject to anything that may be submitted by either side I would propose the following:"   do you not understand?   If Apple wanted to add more to the statement, they should have submitted a request to the judge.  They didn't. Therefore they got slapped down.   The fact that Apple have printed a statement in today's papers in full compliance with the court goes to show they knew exactly what needed to be done.  They tried to push...
Original statement is now gone from the Apple UK site.  At least Apple have managed to comply with the court in that regard.  24 hours left to get the revised statement up, unless Tim fancies explaining himself to the court.
  The xenophobia in this thread is strong.
Apple, along with many other companies, pay very little UK tax.  Most of their UK revenue goes through Ireland, so trying to estimate their UK revenue from their tax bill is a fruitless task.  And never believe anything in the Daily Mail, its only useful for wiping your backside on.
  Every legal issue is important whether you agree with it or not.  If the judge let's Apple get away with this it makes the law an even bigger ass.     Except they DIDN'T comply with the order.  You might not agree with that, but its a fact.
  Doing it "their own way" is what got them into this mess in the first place.  How about doing the "right way" instead?   Also, looks like they have 48 hours to comply, unless Tim Cook gets involved.  From the BBC:  
  Judging from some of the responses in this thread, the reason some of us Brits feel aggrieved is because so far this thread has criticised our judicial system (one of the most respected legal systems in the world), our education system and several other generalised criticisms on the British way of life, all over one poxy court case that in the grand scheme of things means absolutely nothing .  I can imagine the response if we all started stereotyping all of the US...
Nice generalisation.  You're basically writing off one of the world's leading legal systems (that many other countries base their legal systems on, including the U.S.) because you disagree with one judge's decision on one case.  Nice.   Out of curiosity, do you have any legal background at all , or are you just spouting uninformed rubbish?
