bugatti314159 : Contact as many media outlets as possible. This would be a great story for 60 minutes. A multi billion dollar corporation targeting and strong arming individual Americans by filing false claims with Customs. It would be interesting to know if this tactic is approved by Cook himself or it's just his corporate goon squad of lawyers that is responsible. Either way it needs to stop.

Steak : Apple tries to silence you by harming your business and they will keep on doing so. The more they do, the more lucrative your youtube channel will become :)

Super Brian Games : Apple you just lost a customer. I just went back to Windows and built my own Desktop.

Alex DeMilo : I showed my girlfriend your videos showing how apple is bullying you. We chose not to upgrade her macbook and iPhone, and instead bought HP and a galaxy note 9. Companies that are anti competition hurt us consumers in the long run

LFP Gaming : I'm very proud of the fact that I've never purchased an apple product

にゃあエイリアンMeowAlien : Indian might be infamous for their small scale scam, Apple however proudly scam and rob people in broad daylight and people praise them for it

Aamir Bilal : Apple is a greedy company now. Their every new release is touted as the best. Tim Cook is the face of greed. He can never be Steve. Never.

dalecs47 : Put me on your list of those who will not buy Apple products.

Jack-Spicer : I will never buy from Apple again, what a bunch of thieves.

Wick Roswell : EA: We are the Greediest company ever! Apple: Hold my Beer.

: ) SMILE : Everyone wonders why I hate Apple so much and refuse to buy ANY Apple product. Here is one more reason.

Morgan Studios : This kind of thing is why I ended my short iPhone stint and went to Android.

markus tampubolon : Thats why I'm back with the brand nokia android...

Ichigo Kurosaki : Don't buy apple products problem fixed no more apple

Louis Rossmann : Share this video while repair is still legal to someone you know who needs to see it, to ensure it remains legal!

4schitzangiggles : Instead of using Apple logos, copywrited or trademarked items, get some Asian manufacturer to make you some Rossmann Group trademarked "Bananas" or "Oranges" logo'd batteries. Who could make an apples to apples comparison when it would be an apples to Oranges comparison. Bananas is simply a reflection of how the fruity consumer electronics and lifestyle company treats those who choose to "rent or lease" their products. I mean really, if you actually owned it, you could fix it or buy parts yourself. Imagine a car manufacturer seizing your Walmart battery you bought to install to replace the OEM battery, or confiscating your replacement tires that were made outside the US. Holy moly imagine if they kicked in your front door because you dared to install unlicenced audio systems and aftermarket lighting on your shiny new car. What's next Apple, going after grey market phone cases?

Ayratown : You should start gofundme or something like that for legal fees. I am sure you already have the money but Apple needs to understand you have thousands of people behind you if not more. And this is coming from a hardcore Apple user who is sick and tried of the direction they are going after Steve Jobs..

transition lenses : We need to restore customers' rights to repair.

AutumnRage : I am due for an upgrade. Not going to get an apple anything.

DarkSilV : Contact CBS please, they need to cover this story

Jason Markson : Apple repair stores were doing this exact same scam back in the mid 1990's and this is why I have talked hundreds of people OUT OF getting a MAC (when I was a business consultant). In fact, one of my ex-girlfriends was so incensed by apples ruthless disregard to fixing her MAC, that she has also told dozens of people about this rip-off practice.

James yue : the Only Apple product I support, is from my Wet market Apple get it, APPLE ?

Reddit Spy : so, did you got your batteries yet?

over00lord Unknown : Wait, so if the sender of the batteries had scratched the logo off then it would be fine? XD

MBisFrenchy : Let's fund him to go to court to get his batteries back! Make a landmark case.

Vivek Banerjee : Company tactics to hurt legit businesses is a crappy road to take. To Louis : Take this useless company and sue them for all lost wages plus potential wages and bury such dumbfcuks.

daniel walsh : get this man on Rogan

Arnaldo Cova Masiero : hummm weird u just subscribed to this channel for 2nd time... weird...

Jake Cravens : "I am no an apple customer. I do not take to being ripped off nicely" 🤣😆😂😆🤣😆😂 that was too real

undercrackers56 : Folks! Anyone who wants or needs to use Apple products needs to make Louis Rossman's videos viral. He is not just fighting for HIS business, he is fighting for YOUR consumer rights. We need to support him, because if Apple win then all large corporate will be able to take advantage of whatever legal precedents are set. USA first and then the rest of the world. Maybe Apple are already trying to pressure YouTube into closing his channel. Get this channel supported or bend over and take whatever Apple want to shove up there.

Venkatesh E : In India apple co. totally flopped. Nobody is interested in buying their products.

kieron : Definitely not buying a new iPhone now. Time for a switch

Robert Clark : Eve bit the Apple - Dont bit it - theLAB

Patrick Ribbsaeter : Lets get APPLE and kick their butt..

EAX : why would anyone buy an Apple product? oh wait they only rent them because they still belong to Apple.

Shane Gentle : It's YOUR mac. They should let you use "counterfeit" batteries even if they don't like it. Apple doesn't own it. YOU do.

Lortz2610 : I found the CBS video by accident yesterday and saw this video right now. As an IT professional and supporter of customer rights, I wish you all the best! Will search for updates on this case now and hope to find good news. Greetings from Germany my friend!

Hayden Wyllie : Rossman you have made up my mind. I will never buy an apple product. Shame on them

Shammoon Hassan : Dark side of apple...

James H : _Bastards. No-one steals Louis' batteries._ Edit: Wow. Never had this many likes on one comment before. Edit 2: 600 likes? Eh heh, please stop. This comment is kinda worthless and stupid :P Edit 3: 830? wow

Kevin Diaz-Lane : Louis, Your business is representative of the small cottage industries our nation’s founding fathers envisioned for industrious citizens of the republic. While the globalists push for a carbon tax to further enslave us and restrict our freedoms, you contribute positively to reducing “global warming” by extending the life of computer hardware which if it were up to Apple “geniuses” would just end up in landfills. The hypocrisy of our government and duplicity of corporate “America” is appalling. Keep up the good work - you are restoring America to greatness and contributing positively to the solution of global challenges. If Apple doesn’t change its corrupt business practices SOON, in just a few years, it will go the way of the dodo bird.

Kawe T : How do I go about to donate my life savings to this guy ❤.

Rajkumar T.V.D. : So apple 🍏 has people at the very top of US 🇺🇸 😢 the US Govt is hand in glove with Apple 🍏 😰

Lolzzn12 : Anyone else surprised Louis hasn't had an "accident" yet? Wouldn't put it past apple to silence Louis.

Winston Shih : Someone needs to give you money to sue apple for seizing your batteries

Silver Ship Sinker : This is why I don't use anything with an Apple logo

Elton Zammit : We’re behind you, sue them for every cent. I’m an Apple user and it really made me angry on what happened to you!! Keep up the good work, and keep us updated please

Totally Unreal : go get em champ!

MrJuice1979 : You know this doesn't happen in the UK as our government, legal system and customs just isn't anywhere as close to corrupt as the US. It appears there everyone can be bought. Senators, police, customs. Whoever the highest bidder is will win. There's no legal reason to block your business. Apple has absolutely no right to stop people privately repairing their own goods as they're not owned by Apple. The only thing that would happen in the UK is that your warranty with Apple would be void. They tried to stop repairs here but the government said there was no valid reason to do so and threw apples case out. Anyway. Good luck to you. Maybe try re-routing your parts via another country and getting delivered to friends addresses rather than your business that has been clearly targeted as apple have paid off customs.
