Apple Threatens Steve Jobs Doll Manufacturer

M.I.C Gadget, producer of many apple product cases, stands and bags, recently produced an extremely popular and pricey Steve Jobs toy.

Unsurprisingly, Apple wasn't too happy about this.

Last week, M.I.C's website announced:

A few hours ago, we have just received an email from a law firm representing Apple.Inc. Apple has informed us that this phenomenal SJ action figure, has not consented to the use of Apple’s copyrights and trademarks, therefore they request us immediately to cease the marketing and sale of this figure. Here’s what the email has told us:

So for those of you who happened to grab one of these, congratulations on your new and rare collectible.

    It won't happen this time, it won't happen this time, it won't happen this time.

    Well, Apple comes out with a lawsuit over something stupid again. I would've embraced it if that was me they were making, I'd have felt honored. :)

    His head wasn't big enough to please Jobs' "fine" taste. I guess.

    All they have to do is alter his appearance a little bit and then Steve is SOL, because that would fall under "freedom of speech/symbolic speech". Apple could not do anything about it except complain.

    What were they thinking? I hope they didn't invest a large amount of money into this... I don't think apple will agree to a license for this.
