Wow. In my opinion this is a little over the top. What do you guys think?
O boy, this is just another thing that the mods are going to have to watch when people make themes, assuming this go through....
Way over the top
Not really, the apple logo they slap on everything is a registered trademark, so why not certain icons, if they are apple designs with nothing similar on the market. Its just good business sense to protect your intellectual property.
Yeah... Why would they want to do that anyway?
To make sure their icons don't get ripped off and put into products like the iClones.
you mean those phones that come from china that put a semi-shinny apple on the back anyways? I'm pretty sure it wouldn't matter.. there going to do it anyways.
I don't think it's over the top, I mean chinese people are stealing the icons and even though this won't stop them it will deter some. I've seen these icons used on toy products in real stores in the UK. Apple may be annoyed with this but I understand Apple don't NEED to do this for there business model haha.
Yer this isn't going to stop the fakes coming in and it's also a pain in the ass for people who want to make themes with the icons and then display them on here. Maybe the mods could make an exception if this goes through?
