Our friend Florian Mueller over at FOSS Patents has an interesting report out this morning. Mueller states that "By far and away the weirdest ruling in the worldwide smartphone and tablet wars came down last year in the UK, where a publicity order forcing Apple to promote Samsung's products and to make itself ridiculous in public was upheld by an appeals court, and where Apple's efforts to comply with the order were deemed "false and misleading". I thought Apple was being treated way too harshly because in the end it was just trying to defend its intellectual property rights in court and merely had refused to withdraw a German lawsuit after a UK ruling by a lower court." Mueller added "I wonder how certain people in Cupertino feel about it." Yes, this could be interesting. Will it mean challenging that ruling in favor of Samsung? Time will tell - but for now the general cry I'm hearing is: Off with his Head!
