They have every right to present a written submission as was laid out in the original appeal ruling.
Apple's legal counsel was present today when the clarification was issued. Unless Apple's attorneys were asleep they're fully aware of the arguments and discussion, as well as having the opportunity to explain their own position prior to the court's order. Clarification was what the hearing today was for, and it was clarified for both Samsung and Apple at the same time.
"Michael Beloff QC, representing Apple, told judges that the company had thought that it had complied with the court order.
"It's not designed to punish," he (Apple's counsel) said.
"It's not designed to make us grovel. The only purpose must be to dispel commercial uncertainty."
He asked that the company be given 14 days to post the replacement - but the request was firmly denied.
Lord Justice Longmore told Mr Beloff: "We are just amazed that you cannot put the right notice up at the same time as you take the other one down"
