Steve Jobs in Carbonite
Well it was fun while it lasted. Yesterday, Society6 was issued a cease and desist from Apple's lawyers. So I'm sorry to say that the cases and skins are no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Also - I'm unemployed and looking for freelance work!

If anything, take a look around - there's lots of great art on here!

Greg, I ordered the case before the cease and desist order and it's on it's way to me do great designs i'm excited to get my case and to be one of the few that have this case and I will not be selling it on eBay for a profit for myself btw lol

I think that the concept of the case is awesome and for a Star Wars and Stev Jobs fan like me it's pretty damn sweet

keep up the great work

IPod Almighty commented on April 29, 2011 10:51am
Would you be willing to post a scan of the order?
Joe Estkowski commented on April 29, 2011 3:20pm
I've ordered one but have not yet received a shipping notification. Will I be receiving one?
lasivian leandros commented on April 30, 2011 12:36pm
Please post the letter you received.

Apple has little or no standing to force you to stop distributing this. Not only is it obvious parody but Steve has no copyright over his public likeness.

The only company that might have standing here is Lucasfilms.

We have to stop letting big corporations use fear and illegal acts to stop new ideas.

Hey Greg, can you shoot me an email re: freelance gigs? My Gmail is houstonmat. Thanks!

Thinking that you could simply rename your whimsical creation to avoid pointy headed lawyers issuing strongly worded letters against you.
Greg Koenig commented on May 3, 2011 6:19am
Thanks everyone for the support. To answer all of the case requests ... no - I don't have any. I was only able to order 1 for myself before the C&D hit.

Apparently California civil code states that you cannot use a person's likeness or image in selling a product without their consent. It is up to the individual to uphold it. And apparently Steve Jobs is very strict about this and goes after everyone. People have tried to fight it against other celebrities (Arnold Schwartzeneggar) and have lost.

Guys you want Society6 to get in to law suites with Crapple.
Your posts asking for the Jobs case, can be seen by all.

Would be nice if he Could post up a high def pic of the Steve Jobs decal so we could make our own.
But Society6 have probably been told no to that to.

So it begins.
Steve Jobs in Carbonite.
$150 starting bid.
Greg Koenig commented on May 14, 2011 1:48pm
the ones on ebay are going for different amounts. crazy. Again - I do not have any cases. I only was able to order one for myself before the C&D.

I had a skin for sale on under the name "CEO in Carbonite" and that got a C&D too ... they were afraid of the C&D so they had me change the name. It still got pulled.

But just to let everyone know, I have no cases on ebay. All of those are by people who ordered them just to turn around and sell them. Kinda crappy, but nothing I can do about it.
Ioanna Zikakou commented on May 30, 2011 10:04am
Is there anyway you could make one with another figure?
Greg Koenig commented on May 30, 2011 8:38pm
I am debating creating another of a different person. I have one in mind and will most likely do it soon.
Greg Koenig commented on June 6, 2011 6:07pm
Wow. Just saw pics of Steve Jobs from the announcement today. He's really skinny. I hate the see anyone waste away from being sick. Kinda sad.
Greg Koenig commented on July 11, 2011 11:49am
Check out my Steve Wozniak version

Greg Koenig commented on October 10, 2011 7:41am
there are fake versions on ebay. If the skin doesn't say SOCIETY6 or INFECTIOUS than it is a FAKE. Whoever created these stole my artwork and printed out cheap inkjet versions to sell.

Greg I love the concept a lot! please email me at I'd love to get a case and may have some work you'd be interested in.
