    Default Apple Appeals Chinese Court Ruling of Pirated Encyclopedia Apps


    Apple has recently filed an appeal with a Chinese courtís $84,000 judgment regarding the sale of apps containing pirated versions of a well-known encyclopedia, claiming that the company was not responsible for the content.

    Reported first by the Chinese language newspaper, the Jinghua Times, the appeal asserts that the courtís assessment of the Encyclopedia of China Publishing House complaint was incorrect, adding that the $84,000 (RMB 520,000) fine is too high. For those of you who didnít already know, the court decided the case in September, and found Apple to be responsible for the pirated copies as it allowed the content to enter the App Store and profited from its sale.

    Appleís appeal is the latest chapter in a case that dates back to 2010, when the Encyclopedia of China Publishing House filed suit against the company after discovering unauthorized versions of its copy-written material in the iOS App Store. The Cupertino California company argued that it didnít develop the third-party apps and therefore had no responsibility for the pirated content. The company will reportedly hold that contention throughout the appeals process.

    Weíll have to wait and see what comes of the whole ordeal.

    I guess Apple is forgetting about their rigorous app approval process?

    When you appoint yourself the gatekeeper on the farm then yes it's your fault if you let a fox into the hen house.

    Apple holds a strict control of the store, and get 30% off the sales, sure it needs to hold the regarding management responsibility.
