Tremendous excitement amongst the public seems to have followed Steve Job's announcement of the new Apple iPhone.
People can't wait to get their hands on one, literally,
so they've been turning to lookalike "iPhone skins" for their Palm and Windows PDAs.
Apple isn't happy about this, and has threatened
developers with violating their look and feel.
Apple even threatened journalists who have printed pictures of the screens,
warning them "the icons and screenshot displayed on your website are copyrighted by Apple."
What happened to "fair use"? Has Apple learnt nothing from their failed Look and Feel Law Suit against Microsoft? Is Apple risking it's cool image by repeatedly legally threatening anyone who looks sideways at them?
