Chinese co pulls out Steve Jobs dolls from market
London: A Chinese company that produced a doll of technology mogul and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is reportedly pulling the figure from markets following pressure from Apple lawyers, a media report said here.
Toy manufacturer In Icons first advertised the life-like 30-cm doll, which shows Jobs in his signature black turtleneck, rimless glasses and jeans, three months after Jobs died from cancer, Sky News reported.
The doll was supposed to come with a stool and a backdrop that read "One More Thing", the trademark phrase used by the technology mogul when launching a gadget at media events.
The company said the doll was "dedicated to the genius, great inventor, and visionary".
However, under pressure from the lawyers of Apple and Steve Jobs` family, the company decided to end its venture.
"... the original intention for creating the figurine was driven by a fan`s admiration of Steve," In Icons said on its website.
"Though we still believe that we have not overstepped any legal boundaries, we have decided to completely stop the offer, production and sale of the Steve Jobs figurine out of our heartfelt sensitivity to the feelings of the Jobs family," it said.
