[citation][nom]mayne92[/nom]The Chinese... stereo-typically people who don't respect copyright laws until it affects them.[/citation]

yea, I found this interesting as well. This is a place that refuses to crack down on counterfeit stores that sell counterfeit products and uses the excuse that these stores create jobs. Will be interesting to see how this play's out if their is any truth to it.

from my understanding, people upload to apple, they make sure the app works, and it goes online shortly after.

they dont go through it and track down every instance of possible theft.

im on apples side here, than again china is a hell hole for anything coppyright related and possibly needs different rules.

It's about time apples on the other end of the lawsuit even tho it is the Chinese and they pirate all the time. I'm glad to see apple finally getting a taste of their own medicine.

Now why would the Chinese, need counterfeit stores to create jobs, when most every thing you buy now is made in china.

I got a better idea, make the Chinese government pay a bill on the amount of intellectual property and manufacture jobs taken from the US, which it amounts around $250 billion a year for the past 12 years, so about $3 trillion will be a fair amount (still not enough to pay our deficit).

Yes. Let’s all hold individual authors whose material was illegally sold responsible for the nation of China’s inaction regarding counterfeit material.

Why not? I have a feeling if the Chinese authors were found to have plagiarized the material the Chinese government would have backed them up and let them continue.

Yet the American government wants that file uploading sites and ISPs track down every instance of possible theft.

If you are going to make a strange statistic like that I want to see a source. The idea that Chinese information pirates are costing $250 Billion per year in US jobs seems.... how should I put it, a bit extreme. I would understand if it was costing Bigwig CEOs $250 billion per year, as they hold the copyrights to things pirated, I just don't see $250 Billion in Lost US jobs.

Even then that money doesn't go to apple, it goes to the infringees from the infringers.

Although after that it's not like the Chinese writers are the Counterfeiters, so it still isn't something that should be made their problem.
