Apple is allowing third party companies infringe on the rights of other Chinese companies, therefore Apple is responsible for this fault.
This is no surprise as Apple has pirated the LG touch phone, Samsung smart watch, smaller 7 inch tablet, and smart TV. Soon Apple will release a bigger 5 inch phone, one year later than the competition, again a copycat of the other companies 5 inch phone.
Apple should start working on their Apple Glass and Apple driverless car. The others like Lenovo, Huawei and ZTE are already working on their smart watch, smart TV, and Glass integrated with cars etc.
Nokia and Microsoft Glass and smart watch are also coming.
