Submission + - China's web filter: Apple exempt, others sued (goodgearguide.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "Apple appears to be exempt from China's mandate that a controversial Internet filtering program be shipped with all computers sold in the country. Computers that do not meet the software's technical requirements are excluded from the mandate, according to one PC maker. The Green Dam Youth Escort software is not being bundled with machines at the Apple store in Beijing because the software has no Mac version. In the US, a company is taking legal action against Lenovo, Acer and Sony over their shipment of the software, which the company says stole its programming code. Solid Oak Software may also take action against other PC makers that have started shipping the software."
