Apple has updated its website in order to follow a court ruling for a second time. After the UK Court of Appeal attacked the original attempt, deeming it non-compliant, Apple has put another notice up for UK-based website viewers. While toned down from the original attacking-style of the first version, the new statement forces users to scroll down in order to see it in the first place.

While it could be claimed that this is just how the website is designed, users of Hacker News have found what appears to be code that forces the iPad mini advisement to fill the entire page, regardless of browser resolution. It could also be argued that the statement itself flouts the court's wishes, as it admits fault for the first statement and links to the new statement on a separate page, instead of having the statement on the front page. As per the court order, advertisements started to appear in newspapers, displaying a statement about the case. In contrast to the original website statement, the printed version is more straightforward in its approach, fulfilling the court's criteria.

Apple could certainly use a shell company to place another ad opposing this one and state the facts.

Court ruling could be delusional. Facts shouldn't be.

The line "That Judgment has effect throughout the European Union and was upheld by the Court of Appeal of England and Wales on 18 October 2012" would seem to imply that England decides the law for all members of the European Union. Is this true? I'm not familiar with their new system.

Yes, Apple's original statement was a little immature. It WAS, however, completely factual. The revised statement by the English Court seems very Orwellian. Allowing for only Their version of the truth.
