Apple has been ordered to publish a statement on its UK website and in British newspapers admitting that Samsung's tablets don't copy its iPad designs, according to Bloomberg.
Judge Colin Birss' ruling follows the High Court's ruling on 9 July that Samsung's Galaxy tablets don't infringe Apple's registered designs because their tablets are not as "cool".
The order means the message will have to remain on Apple's UK homepage for six months and must be published in "several newspapers and magazines" to correct any impression the South Korea-based company was copying Apple's product.
The ruling is a key victory for Samsung, which is currently embroiled in a series of bitter lawsuits with Apple over alleged incidents of patent infringement.
Outside of the UK, the US courts rejected Samsung's request to lift a pre-trial injunction blocking sales of its Galaxy Nexus smartphone on 4 July, just one day after a similar ruling upheld another injunction against the company's Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet.
Samsung stated that it would continue to fight Apple's patent infringement and reiterated its insistence that Apple's use of legal wizardry to stall competition is causing lasting damage to the market.
"Should Apple continue to make excessive legal claims based on such generic designs, innovation in the industry could be harmed and consumer choice unduly limited," a Samsung spokesperson told V3.
Apple declined V3's request for comment on the court's decision, though Bloomberg reported that Apple's legal team has pledged to appeal the verdict.
