It's not a problem for Apple - they'll just remove their production lines into another country creating a bit of unemployment in China.

I don't feel anything either way, but I am saddened at the way The Reg has become more of a comic than a serious source of IT news with a bit of humour thrown in.
Incidentally, when Whitney Houston died, Sony put up the price of her albums on iTunes. Apple got the blame of cashing in, even though it had nothing to do with it. In the end Apple reduced the price to pre-death prices and absorbed the loss. But I don't recall anything being mentioned about this.

Maybe not on that one article, but there were plenty of others.
Whitney Houston | Itunes Raise Price Of Whitney Houston Album, Furious Fans Protest | Contactmusic
On Monday, reporters fell over themselves to reveal that the price of Houston's Ultimate Collection had gone from £4.99 to £7.99 in the UK's Apple iTunes store and her Whitney: The Greatest Hits had mysteriously increased from £7.99 to £9.99.
Both Apple and Sony, which is Houston's label, were immediately vilified as greedy corporates cynically cashing in on her untimely death.

It appears Apple have now won the case: BBC News - Apple wins Proview China trademark case
Apple has won a case of trademark infringement which, if upheld, would have prevented it from selling iPads in China.
The Shanghai court said that the case, brought by Proview Technology, did not have enough evidence to proceed.

Their own fault for having an automatic system inplace set by Sony? Surprised they have that to be frank, Apple like to do their own thing but not in this case. People would have been angered because they think they are purchasing through 100% iTunes system.
