I don't see what the big deal is. When I go to http://apple.co.uk I see a statement about Samsung in reasonably sized, clear print:

"On 25 October 2012, Apple Inc. published a statement on its UK website in relation to Samsung's Galaxy tablet computers. That statement was inaccurate and did not comply with the order of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. The correct statement is at Samsung/Apple UK judgement."

Edit: Oh, I see...the statement gets pushed below the first visible page so you have to scroll to see it, which most people don't. Still, so what? Where did you guys expect them to put it? Tattooed on Tim Cook's forehead? Joe the plumber doesn't care about intellectual property disputes between electronics companies.

Joe the plumber may not care, but then Joe can't hold Apple in contempt.

Neither can the Judge. The exact wording is right there. So what if you have to scroll to see it. That isn't contempt.

If the intent is for it to be readily visible, then it may be contempt; they could have set the text colour to be #FFFFFF and it would still be the right words on the front page....
