Andrew Escobar, the developer of Mail Stamps and Front Row Enabler (a hack to install Front Row on any Mac running 10.4.5) has received a letter from Apple alleging that he is violating Apple’s trademarks and copyright.
According to MacNN , the letter says in part:
Your use of Apple’s trademarks and copyrighted materials violates Apple’s intellectual property rights, which Apple has an affirmative obligation to protect. Apple therefore must insist that you cease use of Apple’s trademarks and copyrighted images and that you stop offering the unauthorized downloads of Apple’s Front Row software.
It is not clear to me from this or from the post on Andrew’s site (currently down), whether Mail Stamps is really in the firing line, or whether Apple’s concerns are restricted to Front Row Enabler.
