Apple Australia gave the government(/local) 94million AUD last year (wooo tax). Any fine from the government for illegal activity would be far far lower than this.
What would even a 20million dollar fine mean out of the governmetn income in the ranges over 300billion?
Sure they may be 200billion in debt, but any fine is a drop in the bucket.
