In an unusual ruling, British Judge Colin Birss is forcing Apple to announce publicly that Samsung did not copy Apple with its Galaxy Tab tablet, says a report in Bloomberg.

The notice must highlight the July 9 decision that found Samsung did not infringe on the iPad. The company has to post the notice on its website and keep it in place for six months.

It also has to circulate news about the ruling in several high-profile newspapers and magazines. This is the same judge, who said the Galaxy Tab was not as cool as the iPad.
