[color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]The Court of Appeal of England and Wales has ordered Apple to pay the legal fees of competitor Samsung on an 'indemnity basis' after the company [/font][/color][url="http://www.theverge.com/2012/11/1/3585008/uk-court-orders-apple-rewrite-samsung-public-notice"]published a "false and misleading" notice[/url][color=#333333][font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] in the wake of a patent lawsuit over the iPad. The judgement, intended to humiliate Apple, will require the company to pay for all expenses associated with Samsung's legal defense, with any disputes over the exact amount likely to be resolved in the latter firm's favor.[/font][/color]

that actually happens a lot in the US where the courts put the cost of the defense on the complainer if they lose... or else we'd have people with money sueing people without money to make them broke. a lot of the time you have to file a claim in civil court after a case for court and legal costs, sometimes though its part of the judgement if the defendent asked for it to begin with in the case if they won
