    therefore they hold the patent for the iphone 5 design in China and threaten to sue Apple if they release the iphone 5 for sale in China.

    its one thing when a company decides to do something silly, but the chinese govt granted them a patent for their iphone 5 that runs Android.

    and this is the "serious international competition" we're afraid of?

    Apple bit off more than it can chew. Doesn't matter to China. All the phones are made there anyway. The Chinese clone will bury the iPhone because it will be so much more inexpensive.

    I don't get it. So the Chinese cloned the iPhone, which was already out there since 2007, and they can patent that like its a new design?

    No. It's cost more because it worth it. I'll be the first in line.

    The Chinese will do whatever they want with patents. The U.S. has no clout over there. If we cut off all Chinese imports, it would barely affect their economy. We lose either way.
