Court orders Apple to apologise to Samsung
Court orders Apple to apologise to Samsung

British judges say Apple needs to apologise once more for falsely claiming that South Korea's Samsung copied its iPad, the latest embarrassing episode in the tech rivals' world-spanning patent battle.

Apple was ordered to print an apology on its website after British judges repeatedly rejected its claim that Samsung Electronics ripped off its designs when creating its own tablet computer, the Galaxy Tab.

Apple did post an apology, but judges at London's High Court ruled on Thursday that it didn't go far enough and ordered a new one posted to its site within 48 hours.

Samsung and Apple are locked in a series of international lawsuits over alleged copyright violations, including a California case that saddled Samsung with a $US1 billion ($A968 million) fine for copying Apple's design.
