Google There's a bit of a story going on between Google, Acer, and Alibaba, a Chinese mobile operating system vendor. Acer wanted to ship a device with Alibaba's operating system, but Google asked them not to, and Acer complied. The reason is that Acer is a member of the Open Handset Alliance, which prohibits the promotion of non-standard Android implementations - exactly what Alibaba is shipping. On top of that, Alibaba's application store hosts pirated Android applications, including ones from Google.

It is like Microsoft asking Dell not to sell Linux PCs because Wine is available in the repository
… snipped early to keep an apple to pears parallel to the topic.

Wine is not written by Microsoft so there would be no copyright infringement.
