I'd be willing to wager that idea would cut through the "technical difficulties"
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 02 2012 @ 06:49 AM EDT

The "UK" site proudly (sic) contains:

Web Site Publication Manager:
Cathy Kearney

Web site Hosting Service Provider:
Apple Inc., Infinite Loop,
Cupertino, CA 95014
It is clearly in the US (www.apple.co.uk resolves to US IP addresses). If Apple requires 14 days to change the contents, then they are suggesting that either Cathy or her team are incompetent; or they may be trying to hide behind their terms and conditions:
Disclaimers
APPLE DOES NOT PROMISE THAT THE SITE OR ANY CONTENT, SERVICE OR FEATURE OF THE SITE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED, OR THAT ANY DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED...
Obviously intended as terms against someone using the site, especially someone signing up for an account, other terms make interesting reading:
Governing Law; Dispute Resolution
You agree that all matters relating to your access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the United States and by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflicts of laws provisions...
The EU Court of Appeals is not in US (state of CA), so its judgements are non-binding...

The link has now disappeared from the UK home page - Obviously had to replace the UK home page, so why not just replace it with one with the required text?

Or is the 14 day delay Apple wanted because they want to run the text through their legal department that runs at the speed that US legal institutions seem to run, or rather glacially crawl? (The SCO saga lasted how long in US but how long in Germany when required to give evidence or shut up?) The text was issued by a court and is required to be displayed by a court order, so there is no need to have legal check it out: they can just pass any complaints straight to the court judgement; unless they're trying to see how they could "edit" it (but failed when they last tried).
