The Court of Appeal of England and Wales has ordered Apple to pay the legal fees of competitor Samsung on an ‘indemnity basis’ after the company published a “false and misleading” notice in the wake of a patent lawsuit over the iPad. The judgement, intended to humiliate Apple, will require the company to pay for all expenses associated with Samsung’s legal defense, with any disputes over the exact amount likely to be resolved in the latter firm’s favor.
These UK judges are being a bunch of dicks with this legal disclaimer issue. They’re acting like a bunch of drama queens.
I think it all gets back to bitterness over the Revolutionary War.
It’s same reason George Lucas filled the Death Star with British actors.
(I’m only half kidding)
