According to the UK Daily Mail a company called MIC Gadget offered a model of the Apple founder for sale early last year for $89, that product was blocked by Apple’s lawyers, who said at the time” “Mr Jobs has not consented to the use of his name and/or image in the Product. Unauthorised use of a person’s name and/or likeness constitutes a violation of California Civil Code Section 3344, which prohibits the use of any person’s name, photograph or likeness in a product without that person’s prior consent.”

It is not clear whether the same rules would apply now that Mr Jobs is dead.

As the Company is offering models of Apple products, complete with Apple logos, it’s believed Apple lawyers will contend that  it is a breach of Apple Copyright.
