    Way to go bro!!! A real Charmer aren't you?? Take a chill pill and think before you write!!!

    All the people here saying the guy here is wrong or is pathetic to sue "Apple" are a bunch of hypocrites!!!
    Seriously that's why Apple fan boys are not taken seriously!!!

    It's his damn work!!! He has every right to sue!!!
    Apple is so creative and 60 billion times richer than this guy that they could have their own team creating an eye closup image!! But NO they choose to copy or "steal" the men's artistic image!!
    But there are still people arguing here that he is the the bad guy because he is speaking out for what is his!!!!!

    You have a point about apple fan boys I'll give you that but Apple didn't steal or copy the image. They licensed it except used it incorrectly outside of the license agreements (perhaps by mistake). If anything I would say it is wrong to sue Apple for a case like this and instead take a leaf out of "that clock company" (to quote another user posting in the comments here) and come together like civilised people and agree damages. But no (and I don't mean to be at all racist here so please don't be offended) they had to come over all American and sue didn't they...

    I'm not sure what "layout purposes" means but I assume it means layout purposes on a website to illustrate their product so using it on Apple.com is probably fine...

    Lol... Again... Apple has only dealt a blow that was given to them a few years back. It was started by Creative... Not Apple.

    Yeah because no one was sueing people before apple. Geez ignorance. Have you ever thought that maybe apple is just on a lot of people's radar??? I'm sure apple lawsuits are a small percentage of over all patent suits

    omg ppl some of you really need to get a grip on life lol... No Really! if you have the need to bash, blame,shake a stick at or whatever at Apple, because they are Apple Than wtf are you here for? Does Bashing Apple fans and Apple products make you and whatever anti Apple products you own better? or is it because you want Apple products and you cant have them for some reason?

    Apple ya they sue and they get sued BIG F N Deal every company that gets big has this problem... and anyone that says APPLE STARTED THE SUE BS IS A COMPLETE DUMB AZ. stop running you mouth on things you must not know anything about, PLEASE. lol

    does anyone remember the lady that sued mc donalds because her Coffee was HOT but it didnt say it was hot on the cup so how was she to know that the hot cup of coffee she order was in fact HOT! ya if you didnt know she won. it was a mistake of the company to think that ppl are not greedy,or have thosestupid moments followed by thoughts of $$$$$ but not sayn that it shouldnt say its hot on the cup because maybe the coffee is only piss warm where you get your cup of joe..

    point being if you make $ and your products are selling someone out there IS going to sue you at some point... deal with it!

    oh and the ios6 maps dig was lame... Really it was... when you was making hand turkeys in grade school and they wasnt perfect did your classmates say HAHA you suck. Ya prob. not
    there apple they make great products, there not perfect and for some reason everyone thinks they should be and cant wait to say haha your turkey is crappy lol and i think you should pay me.
    haha

    not at all, here is the defenition of "comping" from wikipedia:

    "comprehensive layout or comprehensive, usually shortened to comp, is the page layout of a proposed design as initially presented by the designer to a client, showing the relative positions of text and illustrations before the final content of those elements has been decided upon. "

    so basicly they licensed the photo for internal use
