Apple Sues Amazon Supplier for Selling Fake Cables, Chargers

In a federal lawsuit, Apple asserted that nearly all the iPhones, chargers and cables it surreptitiously purchased from online retailer Amazon were fakes. "As part of its ongoing brand protection efforts, [Apple] has purchased well over 100 iPhone devices, Apple power products, and Lightning cables sold as genuine by sellers on and delivered through Amazon's 'Fulfillment by Amazon' program," Apple's complaint said of a nine-month operation.
