In Icons responds to Apple Inc.'s cease and desist order

Last week, we covered an upcoming action figure of the deceased icon, Steve Jobs. Since the figure's announcement, there has been a flurry of media coverage, which, it turns out, may not have been such a good thing. One of our readers, dolly, notified us that Apple Inc. has since served In Icons, the figure's maker, a Cease and Desist order regarding the production of these likenesses of Jobs. The figure has therefore been cancelled and In Icons aims to have a full refunds to those who pre-ordered. 

This is not the first time Apple has put the kibosh on a Jobs figure. A company in China called M.I.C. Gadget also attempted to manufacture a figurine of the Apple founder, but met a similar fate.
