That's it...no more Apple products for me. As long as the parts weren't stolen this is ridiculous. The only Apple product I have bought until now is the iTouch, because that and the iPhone are the only things I could see being useful, but the iPhone is expensive. But now, no more. I am boycotting all Apple products because I am not going to support this filthy company. No more upgrades.

I think they should take away 50 grand of that. The lil bastard knew he was basically stealing... Kids these days think every god damn thing that isn't drilled to the floor is theirs.

Why is it everyone gets so worked up over apple protecting their intellectual property? If you don't believe in protecting your intellectual property then please create something that everyone wants and I'll find a way to take it and make a profit from it. But you aren't allowed to sue me because you don't believe in it.

Just another example of Apple's arrogance! They're making billions of dollars in profit monthly and they're worried about a teenager offering a white iPhone 4 kit. Unreal. If Apple didn't **** around for almost a year with the white iPhone this would've never happened.

The fact of the matter is that the kid was leeching from a big corporation by using their logo (without permission) and getting parts from a Foxconn employee, both are illegal. I don't wish anything bad for the kid, but what he did was against the law and Apple has the right to sue.

Like I said, the kid was a scammer selling stolen parts. If Apple hadn't delayed release of the white iPhone because of quality issues, he wouldn't have been able to make the money he did with the stolen parts. Apple HAD to sue him to protect their trademarks (and quality standards) or else the next scammer would have an easier time ripping them off.
