Communist Red China Kicking Apple In The Teeth......

According to Communist Red China Apple cannot trademark Iphone. The term iphone is already owned by a separate company. A company that makes handbags.
When you want to do business in a totally corrupt country these are the things that happen.
I just love it. Makes me so happy. Love me some Free Trade.
Apple filed a trademark bid for the name for electronic goods in 2002, but it was not approved until 2013.
(11 YEARS....YEAH THAT'S ABOUT RIGHT)
The higher court ruled that Apple could not prove it was a well-known brand in China before Xintong Tiandi filed its trademark application in 2007.
(NO NOBODY HAS EVER HEARD OF APPLE BEFORE)
The ruling comes shortly after Apple's latest results which showed a 13% drop in revenue on slower iPhone sales. Sales in China had plunged by 26%.
(DOWN 26%...CHINA WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE GREAT NEW MARKET OF THE FUTURE. THAT IS WHY ALL THE JOBS ARE IN CHINA SO IT WOULD OPEN UP THE MARKET AND MAKE LOTS OF MONEY.....WHAT HAPPENED?????? OH RIGHT......THEY WERE LYING. NOW I REMEMBER.....)
Apple is also facing difficulties in other operations in China. In March, Beijing passed a law that required all content shown in China to be stored on servers based on the Chinese mainland.
(EASIER TO SPY ON EVERYBODY WHEN THEY ARE IN POSSESSION OF THE SERVERS. HARDER TO DO WHEN THE SERVERS ARE IN CALIFORNIA. WE ARE TOLD WE CAN'T HAVE PROTECTIONISM IN THE UNITED STATES. FREE AND OPEN MARKETS......JUST LIKE IN COMMUNIST RED CHINA. SEE HOW OPEN THEY ARE?)
As a result Apple's iBooks and iTunes services were shut down in the country. Apple said it hoped access to the services would be restored soon. (DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH)
The move has widely been seen as a blow to Apple as China is the second biggest market for its products. (BUT NO WHERE NEAR THE SIZE OF THE USA MARKET)
Last week billionaire investor Carl Icahn sold all his shares in Apple over concerns about the technology firm's prospects in China.
(THERE ARE NO PROSPECTS IN CHINA. THE CHINESE MAKE KNOCK OFF IPHONES. (THANKS TO APPLE SHOWING THEM HOW TO PRODUCE THEM) APPLE DOESN'T EVEN OWN THE NAME. WHAT A JOKE! YAY FREE TRADE. THAT IS WORKING OUT GREAT.)
