We never thought Apple would be unhappy with the Pineapple CEO action figure. Last month, we reviewed the phenomenal figurine and it was great, all readers here love it so much. However, last week, we received an email from a law firm representing Apple.Inc. Yes, Apple has informed us again that the phenomenal Pineapple CEO action figure, utilizes Apple’s trademark as well as Mr. Steve Jobs image, therefore they request us immediately to cease the marketing and sale of this figure. Here’s what the email has told us:
“Mr. Jobs has not consented to the use of his name and/or image in the Product. Unauthorized use of a person’s name and/or likeness constitutes a violation of California Civil Code Section 3344, which prohibits the use of any person’s name, photograph or likeness in a product without that person’s prior consent… The figure and its stand are replications of Mr. Jobs image and Apple’s trademark. The thin attempt to “disguise” the figure in its current iteration does not impact the fact that you are plainly trading on Mr. Jobs image…”
Well, we think that the lawyer’s action has somehow admitted to the interesting ninja story happened last year September. Anyway, M.I.C. Gadget hereby apologizes to Steve Jobs, Apple.Inc, and their law firm for any inconvenience caused (for the second time). For those of you who want to get the action figure, sorry, it will no longer be available for sale on Earth.
Actually, we are wondering what took the law firm so long to send us an email to request us to cease the marketing and sale of the figure. We reviewed it on January 18, and we received the email on February 8. That’s almost a month time! We believe someone from Apple has bought the figure so the lawyer took so much time to look for us. So, who bought it??
