    I'm curious, is the iPTFs logo made from a wallpaper distributed by Apple, Inc.? Is the logo a mockup of the one made by Apple?

    Thanks.

    It's based on the wallpaper from Time Machine - which is most likely copyrighted - but I'd say that using it for the logo constitutes fair use.

    I know about the background in Time Machine but the picture is an actual wallpaper as well.

    No, it's not. I don't have it in System Preferences anyway.

    Well, I guess it's not in mine either, but all in all, the image is still Apple's and the site is using it as its logo. Hmmm, I guess everyone has a mixed opinion about piracy.

    Why did you even start this thread? Are you just trying to 'tell on' bgizzle?

    No, and no. If you have any further concerns, I would advise you to contact me privately rather than posting threads like this.
