9to5Mac reported earlier this month that a U.K. Judge ruled Apple must publicly state Samsung did not copy the iPad design, but a London court ordered a stay today until the company’s appeal is heard this fall.

According to Bloomberg

  • Apple Inc. won’t immediately have to publish a notice on its U.K. website that Samsung Electronics Co. didn’t copy its iPad tablet, a London court ruled today.
  • Apple was ordered earlier this month to put a note on its U.K. site and buy advertisements in British newspapers to alert customers to a court ruling that Samsung hadn’t copied the iPad’s design. Cupertino, California-based Apple appealed saying it didn’t want to advertise for its rival. The order is stayed until its appeal against the ruling is heard in October.

Apple’s public statements, if the appeal is rejected, will appear as a message on its website and in British newspapers.
