Apple Sues Church Of Satan

from the chose-your-opponents-carefully dept

Apple is already used to battling Microsoft, so how different can it be to fight with the Church of Satan? Apparently, the webmaster for the Satanists is a big Mac fan and created some parody ads of Apple's "Think Different" campaign - but for the Church of Satan. Apple's legal department forced them to take it down. The Satanists think that since Apple uses an Apple with a bite out of it, it's a clear reference to a certain religiously significant apple... Thanks to GeekPress for finding this great story.

    Creative freedom for the church of Satan

    The church should be left alone on this one. They only had it on the web. It's not like they were makeing shirts or profiting from this.The Satanic church is an easy target for Apples legal team to bully.
