LITIGIOUS Apple is apparently threatening the Chinese maker of a Steve Jobs action figure with legal action.
According to the The Telegraph, Apple has told Chinese company In Icons, which makes the 12-inch doll, that it will sue unless they cease trading.
Reportedly the legal battle centres around the likeness of the figurine to the late Apple co-founder, and Apple says it owns the rights.
In a rumoured letter to In Icons, Apple wrote that any toy that resembles its logo, the name of someone who works for it, or the appearance or likeness of its products is a criminal offence.
The doll, which we at the INQUIRER are quite honestly are disturbed by, wears Jobs's trademark blue jeans, sneakers and black turtleneck sweater.
It also comes with accessories including a pair of glasses, a leather belt, black socks, a bar stool, two apples and even a "One More Thing" backdrop.
For those that still want the figure despite this, it's currently available on Ebay for $135, on preorder. It's normally $99 and is due for release in February if, of course, it ever appears on the shelves. µ
