    Default Chinese Film Studio Suing Apple


    According to details emerging in an unusual story from The Hollywood Reporter - not your typical source for Apple news - the Cupertino, California-based iPhone maker is being sued by a state-owned Chinese film studio.

    The suit, which was just filed in a Beijing court, alleges Apple sold its movies in the iTunes store without approval.

    Shanghai Animation Film Studio, which is backed by the Chinese government and is seen as a leading player in the nascent Chinese animation space, is seeking a little over half a million dollars in damages in the suit.
    Although most headlines pertinent to illegal distribution of entertainment content usually center on Asian-based piracy of US-made entertainment, this most recent dispute just illustrates the two-way street of challenges born of the modern age of digital content.

    According to a senior executive at Shanghai Animation, "We want to keep tight-lipped on this case because, as we see it, it's just a litigation in which we want to get compensation [for our product]... It's a sensitive period now since Apple is a big multinational company and it is surrounded by controversies on its practices in China."

    They have nothing in this case. They just want money from Apple to go buy more Cocaine for their workers. That's all it really is.

    The interesting part to me is the half million dollars. Even the most frivolous suits sue for more than that when the know what Apple has in the bank.
