Apple knives the baby iPhone clothes

“A children’s clothes retailer that sold baby outfits based on Apple’s iconic iPod and iPhone user interfaces and icons has been forced to close after Apple demanded it cease business,” Simon Jary reports for PC Advisor.

“Website has been selling the range of iPod and iPhone baby clothes for several years,” Jary reports. “But Apple is notoriously protective of its brand and relevant icons, and has finally sent its lawyers in to close down the ipopmybaby business.”

Jary reports, “Apple hasn’t demanded a complete cessation of business, allowing the website to sell of the remainder of its stock. The retailer is now offering 40 percent discounts on all its Apple brand-busting baby clobber ‘until supplies last or December 11th, whichever comes first.'”

    1. So, you’re privy to the profits generated by this outfit?

      Please elaborate.

      More likely it’s not worth Apple’s time to assign even one person to deal with stuff like this. It’s a distraction. Apple doesn’t need to license their patented and trademarked icons and UI elements to baby clothing sellers.

  1. The retailer should keep the iPod touch logo with all the icons, I like that one. EXCEPT don’t do icons, and don’t do tiles, and don’t use a vertical rectangle and don’t use black as the base color. Create your own “UI” that is not beholding to anyone, and icons that aren’t little squares and go with wild colors like neon and go gangbusters. Like I said I like the one that has the baby app icons. I occasionally use the “burp” and “nap” app myself!
