Surely there should be some protection for Apple against having to fix problems that have been caused by dodger, cheap, third party components. If I throw non genuine parts in my new Mercedes and cook the engine does that mean Mercedes has to fix it? I’d like to see the ACCC take on other industries with this law.
Consider Apple’s icons for phone, message, address book, calendar, mail etc. all of which have been blatantly copied by Samsung and every other phone maker. No compensation from them. So don’t expect any money from Apple just because it has similar colours but a totally different design. Isn’t going to happen.
