Whoops! Chinese Government shuts down iTunes Movies and iBook stores

In its biggest move yet to regulate Apple in China, the Chinese government has forced Apple to shut down its iBooks Store and iTunes Movies in the country — just six months after the services were first made available.

While the government initially approved the launch, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television reportedly changed its mind and demanded that Apple shutter the service.

Cultofmac.com reported the above that the Chinese Government got tough with Apple again. Selling in China is a potential goldmine for Apple but the government really want ultimate control and censorship. Maybe the Chinese people will create an uprising of protests against their government? To me this is not only about state control but the state wanting a share of the profits too!
