It appears that Apple's notice about a U.K. ruling for a battle between it and Samsung didn't sit well with some judges. A new report from The Guardian claims that a U.K. court of appeal has decided that the statement, which explained that a judge's decision that some Samsung Galaxy Tab models don't infringe upon the design of the iPad, is "non-compliant" and that Apple must alter the wording of the notice. The court has given Apple 48 hours to post an updated statement, adding that it must put the notice on its homepage and post it in at least an 11-point font. Apple wanted 14 days to rewrite the statement, but that request was rejected.

The statement that was posted on Apple's U.K. website last month did indeed acknowledge the judge's ruling that Samsung didn't copy the design of the iPad. However, it also included statements from the judge saying that the Galaxy Tab models "are not as cool" as the iPad, as well as information about court battles that Apple won in both Germany and the U.S. The fact that Apple chose to include that information in its notice isn't really a surprise, as I'm sure that the company wasn't totally thrilled about posting a "Samsung didn't copy" statement on its site in the first place. It'll be interesting to see how Apple rewrites the notice and if it tries to leave in some of the details that the U.K. judges today deemed "non-compliant," so stay tuned for more.
