What do governments have to do with this? This is a discussion on an international Apple related forum about Apple donating money to a worthwhile cause. As an Apple user and a registered member of this forum I am fully entitled to contribute to the discussion.I didn't say it gave me a right to choose how their profits were spent, (although my bank does exactly that ), but I feel that I am entitled to enter into a debate about those choices.Not strictly true.
