    I had to Google that to verify that wasn't a prank. Turns out it is true.

    Apple would have to prove that they open iTunes/QuickTime and agreed to the terms. Guess Apple doesn't want people listening to their favorite jams while making nuclear war heads. Dang Apple you're no fun! :D

    I see a Mac, but I don't see iTunes / QuickTime.

    WTF?

    Hasn't Apple hardware been on the US export restriction list to countries like the PRK since the G4 ???

    I doubt it was shipped from the US Apple Store to North Korea. So nothing got violated here.

    It wouldn't have to be shipped from a US store for the sanctions to apply, if Apple was selling it directly to the North Koreans from anywhere they would be violating them. Of course they probably get in there by someone that the North Koreans trust paying cash at a store in China and then carrying it back with them. So the person who is breaking the sanctions is whoever was carrying it across the border.

    I suppose someone would have to demonstrate that they used iTunes/QuickTime to develop, design, manufacture, or produce those weapons.

    All I see it something that appears to be an iMac.

    Nope, if it was bought online in China there would be no violation as it is run by Apple China, which due to geographical location, does not fall under US juristiction. There is also no similar law in China.

    Again, that person did not break any law as far as sanctions are concerned.
