    I hate to burst your bubble, but I can only assume selling things featuring Apple's copyrighted materials is a tad on the illegal side.

    I remember all the details from the first time -- you never forget! :)

    Oh, wait, you are talking about the first time with a Mac.

    Then that would be an original Mac! :D

    The two-tone Mac face is one I kind of associate with the days when Apple products weren't as their best. The Mac-shaped happy Mac, in color if you like, would produce more warm fuzzy feelings.
    The buyer is in generally better shape here, since the trademarks aren't being used for trade at that point.

    Cafepress don't seem to care about trademarks or copyright.

    I doubt apple cares to much about shirts and bumper stickers that promote the brand...

    Exactly- it's hardly detrimental to the brand. In fact, it is free marketing, so they won't sue.

    the fact that others are in violation doesn't make any difference, that's not really a good argument.

    However, in reality, I doubt apple would even go to the trouble to do anything. At most, all they would do is issue a cease and desist letter. It's not like they would ask for any money you made.

    I once knew someone that had some Simpsons characters on his website, and Fox emailed him, telling him to remove them or the wrath of god (or ruppert murdock in their world) would be brought to bear.

    If he turns a profit from it, they will care. but their level of care is directly proportional to his profit. :)

    Take it to the extreme... if he makes a million bucks from that sticker, then apple will <fill in the blank>.
