Steve Jobs, trademarked by Turkish bloke for fashion range

Apple will be furious today (which is always nice) as a man in Turkey has apparently been granted the trademark for 'Steve Jobs' for a clothing line.

Kamil Kürekçi put in his application to trademark the name of the late Apple co-founder, and a statement on the trademark application said: "Opening overseas with this name will be an advantage for us considering that we will be mainly exporting."

"We think that Steve Jobs is a worldwide known brand that will never be forgotten. It is also obvious that it will facilitate our work on overseas advertisements of our products."

So what can we expect from all this? The obvious thing to assume is that there'll be black turtle neck jumpers, jeans, rimless specs and boring trainers on offer. However, it'd be much funnier if this was a line of sexy clothes. Crotchless undercrackers and gimp-masks with Steve Jobs' face on them.

The likelihood of any of this seeing the light of day is slim though, as Apple are incredibly protective of their brand and image, which is a shame.

We can only hope that some items get released without permission, just like those pretend Apple stores in China. The world needs to see a Steve Jobs dildo as a pick-me-up. Or, at the very least, we want some berk to make something similar to Apple's clothing range from the mid-eighties.

    Will they also be releasing a branded homeopathic range of sugar pills to successfully cure pancreatic cancer?

    So is Steve Jobs a trademark of Apple, now? I would have thought it would be down to the Jobs' estate to take action.

    Considering all the counterfeit crap Turkey knocks out, I'm surprised they even bothered applying for a trademark.

    If they can patent a fucking oblong and get away with it they can do anything, the fact that they stole the Beatles trade mark, which when the 2 Steve's were pretending to be harmless hippies they promised the Fabs that they wouldn't ever have anything to do with music, which by the time they started making a lot of their money from music, they were so big they just told the Beatles to fuck off , so it always strikes me as high hypocrisy, when they chase all and sundry for supposed copyright/patent infringement

What do you think?
