Steve Jobs... meet Steve Jobs Action Figure

Deep Thinking Steve Jobs.

Apple is threatening the maker of the Steve Jobs action figure.

The very closely matched (and maybe a bit creepy) figurine is 12 inches tall, and comes complete with Job’s fashion get-up of blue jeans, sneakers and black turtleneck sweater. It’s the creation of the Chinese based company InIcons. It is set for sale in February for a targeted $99.

However, legal action is looming from the Apple juggernaut.

But InIcons isn’t afraid. The company demands that “There is no copyright protection for a normal person. Steve Jobs is not a product…so I don’t think Apple has the copyright of him”.

Apple begs to differ, and implicitly states that Steve Jobs and the idea of Steve Jobs is the package completely owned by Apple.
