Apple sued for selling movies through iTunes without permission
Washington: A Chinese animation studio has sued Apple of selling its movies through iTunes Store without approval.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, citing a report from the South China Morning Post, Shanghai Animation Film Studio, which is backed by the Chinese government, has sued Apple for more than 500,000 dollars.

The firm claimed that Apple sold over 110 of its movies, including ‘Calabash Brothers’ and ‘Black Cat Detective,’ in the iTunes store without asking it, CNET reports.

According to the report, the animation studio is staying tight-lipped on the matter, saying only that "it''s just a litigation in which we want to get compensation."

This is not the first time Apple is being sued by a China-based firm.

The company last year was forced to pay 60 million dollars to settle a lawsuit with Proview over the iPad trademark in that country.

Chinese companies have also sued Apple for its use of the Snow Leopard trademark and Siri.
