A Clone War casualty: Apple manages to stop Meizu M8 sales in China

Of all the Xing Lings, he was the best: the Meizu M8 was copying various elements of the iPhone without a doubt and for years it must have been a stone in the shoes of Infinite Loop lawyers. Incidentally, there were even plans to give it a successor with more capabilities, like a 5 megapixel camera (just like the iPhone 4, but no like the iPhone 4).

Well, more: according to the 9 to 5 Mac, Meizu CEO Jack Wong announced that sales of the M8 will cease indefinitely because of the pressure exerted by Apple. Future projects, such as the M9, will be postponed without a plan to resume or simply canceled. Apparently, Meizu people are upset that Apple has involved the Chinese Intellectual Property Department, which would have the authority to close its factory without the need for judicial authorization.

Apparently, this is the end of the M8, but I can't understand why it took so long to happen: lack of bases for contesting, who knows? Perhaps that is why the words “patent” and “China” have appeared so much here, lately.
