"Presumably, then, Apple should just offer one year warranty as they do in the US. Why bother following the law in countries they sell abroad to?"

So you are comparing a physical item being physically sold somewhere against people in the EU being the ones intentionally going to the US (internet) and buying within the US? This is the virtual/internet problem governments seem to struggle with too. Reality is reality, that is where the borders are and jurisdiction pretty much ends without cooperation between governments.

Of course the EU is welcome to copy the Chinese model of blocking anything they disagree with. Firewall themselves from the outside world and so on.

Just realised this also applies/agrees with John Brown (no body) about the physicality of territory. Even if I disagree this is WP's problem.
