PFFFFFFFFTT HAAAHAHAHAHAHA

Oh man... hey, we're lucky though. At least Apple isn't the sort of company that's evil and throws its weight around, demanding things... oh wait...

In any case, we were talking about the iPHONE. That's not an Apple trademark, now, is it?

At least they're not hypocrites. At least they didn't use a copyright without permission and then accuse someone else of doing it... oh wait...

Come on here and talk to us yourself Steve. Man of the people.

laughable :)

this is all just too funny... At least it's "good" publicity for modaco and the xda site... Get noticed more \o/

I don't understand though... If showing the pics are a violation of copyright laws or whatever, what about the tons and tons of articles on the web (including news sites like cnn and stuff) that have pics and vids?! What would happen if everyone started hosting pics all over the net on all the sites that host pics?

HEEEEEEEEY GOOD PUBLICITY!!

http://www.smh.com.au/news/mobiles--handhe...8709656280.html

I don't think I've ever seen MoDaCo in the australian newspaper before :) maybe people will read it and realise they can come here to talk about smart phones that exist!

By the way, is Apple gonna sue the sydney morning herald for having the pic?

LINK AND SCREENSHOT REMOVED FOLLOWING AN EMAIL FROM APPLE'S LEGAL TEAM! - click here for more details, and see quote below.

Lusting after the iPhone style but can't wait 6 months (at least)? Don't want to give up your PPC and shell out $600? Then maybe this is the answer!

XDA-Developers user 'hanmin' has been working some magic over in [link removed, see above], to bring you the today screen pictured, courtesy of claunch (free) and phoneAlarm (cha-ching!).

I haven't installed it myself yet (i'm about to though), but you have to admit, it looks pretty slick! :) Give it a try... and let us know how you get on!

Whoever made that iphone theme, greaat job hats off to ya!!

Just another thought, why are all the Apple skins for Wisbar Advance and Windows XP acceptable yet a screenshot of an iPhone skin deemed illegal?

Just another reason why I refuse to by anything with the Apple badge on it - Makes a mockery of all those anti-IBM "1984" adverts they ran in the 1980s really doesn't it! :)

It's made the TV news C4 luchtime news talking about modaco (but not in actual name)

They also said APPLE were not prepared to discuss this and declined making a comment.

Cowards they know they have made a kneejerk reaction.

Paul, you shouldn't have given in like this, they're just rattling their swords, as you read from their email, they don't really know what they're talking about.

Man I love this look a lot, so I went a little nuts a made a VGA version for my X50v, even though its not a phone (except for using Skype.) Still working on it (in Wisbar Desktop) but thought Id show off what's done so far with all my fancy-pants icons (had to make 'em myself for VGA). BTW the theme is the awesome Vista Portable Edition theme by XcSkins for Wisbar.

(had to make 'em myself for VGA).

hear that? MADE HIMSELF. *not* iCopyrighted!

Although, kiint, would love to see the vista top bar (which i personally use, and have never been sued by MS for using) replaced with one that entirely by coincidence resembles the ummm... (whispers) top bar of a particular kind of phone... *wink wink*

I think that Apple's legal teams are using the same approach as they did with the ppod etc where they were protecting the ipod's unique scroll wheel design and mp3 filing structure... you know the one they ended up having to pay Creative $100 million for, after "borrowing" their patented idea...

It's just a theme? people use windows xp icons all the time and M$ doesn't sue everyone? I think it's just going to generate bad press for apple, considering they are already in violation for using the iphone name.

From the article:

"What MoDaCo did appears to be the equivalent of waving a bright red cape in front of an angry bull."

Hmm - no. Angry Bullsh*t morelike. Apple just got a bit puffed up and decided to throw their weight around, and MoDaCo felt the force of it.
