Click.

I found this interesting. It's all about the money;

Apple had planned to strengthen its case with the government by arguing that defective batteries could blow up and injure people, and that lost tax revenue could have a significant economic impact, the cable says.

The arguments weren't very effective. China's government declined to investigate a facility in March 2009 that was manufacturing imitation Apple laptops because it threatened local jobs, says a cable dated April 2009. A different arm of China's government scrapped plans for a raid on an electronics mall in the Guangdong province because it could have driven away shoppers, the cable says.

Right

Also it is not just about money and jobs and greed.

It is a deep routed sense that stealing copy righted material = Really means ( good business practice.) In a sense to rip off someone else and produce the knock offs faster than the next guy in China. <-- you are now considered #1 , a very smart businessman.

They don't think that they are committing any crimes at all . In fact they don't even understand why Apple is complaining or has any right to complain. Mind you that China has be stealing copy rights for decades , everything from Cars to planes to perfume to jewelry to watches , you name it.

Bottom Line.
China economy has been built on counterfeiting and the government still feels it is a good business practice and that culture is not gonna change any time soon.

Don't they realize how hard on everyone this makes things??
They need to be more rigid on their staff and not just keep one eye on the monster.
VaChina will keep this up... till these former private dicks from the FBI can get their hands on these pricks.
