Apple & Customs STOLE my batteries, that they won't even provide to AASPs.

Comments from Youtube

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

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

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 :)

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

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

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.

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

ChirpyBird123 : Wow he got savage at the end. Amazing tho and I'm glad you're not just giving in to them. #RightToRepair

Novin Davis : Well, now i know why Apple is a Trillion-Dollar Company.

Juksemakeren : And they have the nerve to pretend to care about the environment...

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

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?

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

kishore swaminathan : Proud of you for standing up. They definitely targeted you because of the cbc article. #RightToRepair

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..

jojy yo : Louis you are realy the best. I would hope that there where more youtubers that are just realy corect.

daniel walsh : get this man on Rogan

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!

Marc Boutilier : They are going to seize your supply? I hope they get a seizure!

Hande Alexander : Apple is the devil and I would never use apple products

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

popnimpop : When did Apple invent the battery? You can’t exactly make a counterfeit of something they didn’t invent and don’t even make. Other companies make the batteries for them and those companies also happen to not own a trademark on batteries

PandaTheory : There is a reason they are a trillion dollar company... Just a bunch of scammers

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

stoeger 2 : I wish the chargers could run phones without the battery mounted

Fan : Any updates for the law suit back?

David Merlino : They want you to buy A new IPad

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.

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.

koolazifsydney : 737 dislikes......wondering who they are!!! LOL

P5KPL : Hey Dude I really like your videos and you are totally right. I had repaired for myself and some friends some iPhones and I got the problem with the home button but well I got it just reuse the old one if it works. All in all apple just wants your money🤷‍♂️

IPlayGames : Until the avg customer gives a fk about their questionable business practices and the quality/the product itself instead of the brand value, nothing will change. Once you've established a closed ecosystem, they will keep coming back for more and you don't even need to do much. People are just that gullible/exploitable lol

Антон Южаков : Shit move by Apple... Hope there will be another episode with CBC.

Someone Sure : So much for the land of the free

Enrique Gonzalez : Love what your doing brotha!!! 💪🏽 keep it going strong. You have my full support

Howard Barnett : I would suggest not servicing their products, tell customers about why in excruciating detail, and offer them a phone running Android that works like an Apple product, i.e. dumbed down with pretty pictures. Then agqain, I tend to be somewhat...vengful in these types of cases.

KHILADI : PLEASE TELL ME THE OUTCOME! I HOPE YOU WON AND KICKED THEIR ASSES!

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

Sodisna : And yet people still support apple. Amazing.

LeVaar Sanchez : I was gonna buy my first iPhone but after seeing this I'm sticking with android. U have my support

Mike Hanseman : Order 5 at a time and have them shipped to a friends residence, somebody that doesn't do repair. And fight the good battle!

Japhy Ryder : Love how they deem the batteries to be counterfeit without providing any evidence to support their claim. I wonder how that will hold up in court?!
