If Apples lawyers had did their job, they wouldn't be in this mess. Still most people in China either don't want a iphone or will get a knockoff.

because apple settled with proview from the very beginning... something went wrong in a contract or something and proview decided to sue in china... that is why they have not sued in other places i believe, cause apple has the name from the original contract-- i am not sure of the full story

It's Justice! I'm glad that Apple is on the other end of the lawsuit spectrum.
