In Icon is producing a very detailed action figure in the likeness of former Apple titan, the late Steve Jobs. Apple, of course, is threatening legal action. You can read more and see images of the figure at http://mashable.com/2012/01/05/apple-threatens-to-sue-steve-jobs-action-figure-report/
So does Apple have a case, or should the manufacturer be allowed to continue to produce and sell the figure? Personally, I am very impressed with the quality of the figure...but I have to think whoever is handling Mr. Jobs' estate would have final say in who can use his likeness for a profit. Am I wrong? And would you buy one?

I think at the very least, the company should have offered the family a portion of the profits, after all, their making a action figure of a real person (or was anyway) but personally, no I would not buy a steve jobs action figure-especially one for 100 bucks.
