U2-Negativland iPod Auction shut down by Apple!

Francis Hwang reports that his auction of a modified iPod has been shut down by eBay after a complaint from Apple Computer. As reported here a few days ago, Hwang was selling a special U2 iPod with the packaging changed to make it an unauthorized "U2-Negativland" model. The auction was one day away from completion and had reached to over $400. He has yet to hear from Apple in response to his query about the complaint.

Way to go, someone actually found a way to get some lawyers sicked on them while doing something having to do with Negativland. We were beginning to think they were untouchable.
