Thread for those betting (or hoping) that Apple will once again flub this up ...

Another possibility.

They will just ignore the order, thumb their nose,
and basically see if they can ignore the court.

It will not take me 14 days to do the HTML.

Can an EU court order that ISPs block access to domain?
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, November 01 2012 @ 03:14 PM EDT
I know this was done on some level with the pirate bay but
I'm unsure if it was court or government action.

I would guess that an order blocking all EU access to the
apple domain whilst it is hosting untrue statements against
the original order might hurry things along.

(Yes I know that technical measures can be circumvented but
with the core apple demographic of people who expect things
to just work without effort, it would surely hit their
bottom line.)

"Unfortunately the domain you requested cannot be accessed
at this time due to Apple refusing to follow court orders.
Until they comply, all pages on this entire domain will be
replaced with the text mandated by the court. Have a nice
day."

But you won't be able to reach the Front page
Authored by: Boundless on Thursday, November 01 2012 @ 05:30 PM EDT
When I went to apple.co.uk today, it redirected to a an iPad page. I had to
deliberately navigate to the home page to find the tiny link buried at the
footer.

I expect more of the same.

And if the judge has similar trouble reaching the page ...

What they can do, while following the law, is to post two separate (AND VERY
CLEARLY SEPARATE) articles. One just plainly states the results of the court
case, absolutely no bells and whistles. The other is how Apple perceives this
notification, and how they plan to proceed regarding it. The first article would
comply with the rulings. The second article should not have any issue with the
ruling, so long as they do not claim the ruling to be false. (like clearly
stating that any further accusations would NOT involve this issue in the courts
where this issue has been resolved)

They won't. Remember that they are dealing with a judicial system that at this
level doesn't fine in fixed amounts but in percentages of
profit/revenue/income.

Non compliance fines might start out small (more of an attention getter) for a
business the size of Apple. They won't stay that way and even apple will take
notice of having them end at a level of the profits made in the entire EU.
