    Steve Jobs Action Figure?

    If you've ever dreamed of owning an action figure of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, you may have to keep dreaming. As the New Year kicked in, an overseas company called In Icons created a buzz in the toy collecting community with $99.99 pre-orders for an eerily life-like 12-inch figure of Steve Jobs. Too good to be true? It is.

    The Telegraph now reports that Apple has threatened a legal action against the Hong Kong company. The legal wrangle is over the likeness of the figure, the rights of which the company claims it owns. The Telegraph states that "Apple reportedly stipulates in a letter to the Chinese manufacturer that any toy that resembles the technology company's logo, person's name, appearance or likeness of its products is a criminal offense."

    Toy bootlegging and the disregard for licenses is a prevalent problem in China. The question now is: How does Apple plan on enforcing their legal action?
