The makers of an action figure with an uncanny resemblance to the late Apple founder Steve Jobs are reportedly being threatened with legal action by Apple, reports “The Telegraph” (http://macte.ch/kjwop).
Toy companies, in icons and Dragon in Dream, unveiled the figure based on the late tech icon. It features a realistic likeness and Jobs’s trademark black turtleneck, jeans and sand shoes. The figure is due for release in late February for $US99.99 plus shipping.
Apple says it owns rights to the likeness of Jobs. The company reportedly stipulates in a letter to the Chinese manufacturer that any toy that resembles the technology company’s logo, person’s name, appearance or likeness of its products is a criminal offense, says “The Telegraph.”
