Submission + - Apple: Brits too thick for Javascript; hides statement off the edge of homepage. (apple.com)

rtfa-troll writes: If you had already been ticked off for failing to follow a court order properly, you would be careful not to mess up this time, wouldn't you? Well, maybe not if you are not a big corporation. After being caught misleading people about it's designs Apple was ordered to clearly state that "the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do not infringe Apple’s Community registered design". First time around they actually included further misleading statements on the same page as their correction leading to headlines such as APPLE: SCREW YOU, BRITS, everyone else says Samsung copied us actually being shown by Samsung in court. This time round, Apple was ordered to put up some text on their homepage. Technically the correction is part of the homepage HTML, however, if you go and look at Apple's UK homepage you will find that a clever piece of Javascript which resizes the headline product image means that for any normal consumer screen, you will never actually see the notice without manually scrolling past the end of the normal legal messages. How far can Apple push and get away with it?
