There is a provision its just not enforced. Whenever someone files a false DMCA claim they are guilty of perjury (which carreis a 5 year jail term). So when Viacom went after YouTubers who were covered by the fair use provisions, Viacom committed perjury, but nobody pressed charges against Viacom. If people used MPAA and RIAA content that were strictly under fair use (and lets face it, they do it all the time) somebody needs to charge them, not sue (as they drag it out) but proceed in criminal charges (which legal work is done by the prosecutor) against these organisations. That way you could see Dodd go to jail.

So what law are they violating? I am talking about China not the US. A Chinese company does not have to answer squat to Apple nor the US legal system. They could make a doll with a penis on the head of Obama and the US Government couldn't touch them. Selling these dolls in the US is another matter (the Steve Jobs ones), but those that want them could simply import directly from China.

You have always been able to install unofficial apps on Android. The incentive to root your phone (not sure about tablets) is with alot of handset makers, they are painfully slow to provide updates for ROM's phones if they provide them at all.

HTC is a big culprit: their Gingerbread update took forever and only the Desire/Z/HD & Incredible got the upgrade at all.
