The four-inch plastic action figure of Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs will no more be in the market as the iPhone maker's law firm has sent a cease-and-desist letter to MIC Gadget that created the figure.
The toy featured the CEO’s trademark black turtleneck, blue jeans, rimless glasses, and New Balance sneakers. The figure also holds a tiny iPhone in its left hand. China-based MIC Gadget has already sold out 300 figurines, each costing $80.
Apple's law firm has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the company, stating the product violated the use of its copyrights and trademarks and requested the company immediately stop the marketing and sale of this figure.
The toy has already gained much attention from shoppers and on the Internet as it is holding iPhone incorrectly, showing the signal loss on the iPhone 4.
Not only the figurine became famous, the CEO also gained much fame for his innovative and forward thinking in the world of technology.
Recently Jobs engaged in a war of words with its rivals such as RIM, stating their tablets are “dead on arrival for their smaller screens.
Jobs has also escalated battle between Apple and Adobe over the use of Flash and the refusal of Apple to support the popular web video and animation format.
