Last month was sentenced to pay a €150,000 fine and ordered to post this notice of the court's decision that is now being displayed on The fine which is around $204,000 is the maximum allowed by law in France. This is not the first time a company has been asked to post a notice on its main website. Apple was also required to inform its visitors when it lost a case against Samsung in UK. Apple however had problems after it excessively editorialized the notice.
