If they come from the same maker in China then are they the ones that failed QC tests?
These are the sort of questions that need to be answered. This will happen as the lawsuit progresses.

Many readers of El Reg that don't like Apple in any shape or form but they spent a lot of time & $$$ to design a really neat Laptop Power connector. They innovated. Why shouldn't they get some financial return for their innovation?
If these places are selling fakes and one catches fire guess what, the customer of the fake will very quickly sue Apple for supplying a faulty device which will provide another 'Hate Apple' headline here/
Apple (like and other H/W maker) has to protect itself from things like this.
