Apple is being sued in China again
The film in question, "Xuebo dixiao," focuses on China battling Japan in the 1930s. It wasn't broadcast directly by Apple, but through Youku HD, an app available in the App Store.
Both Apple and Heyi Information and Technology, Youku's parent company, are being sued, with the Centre demanding the film be taken down and both organisations pay 50,000 yuan, which converts to roughly \\$7,500.
It's not Apple's first run in with SARFT, with the group shutting down iTunes' Movies and iBooks services back in April. That would be the first in a string of setbacks for the company in China -- in May it lost a trademark suit against a Beijing-based accessory maker that brands some of its products as "IPHONE", and in June it was accused of copying a little-known Chinese brand's design and using it on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
