U2 vs. Negativland iPod

Well, sometimes intellectual property gets really weird. Francis Hwang put together a U2 iPod with albums from Negativland to create the Unauthorized iPod U2 vs. Negativland Special Edition for sale on eBay. Apparently the asshats at Apple complained that this project somehow violated one of their copyrights or trademarks. An intellectual property attorney quoted in the Wired story about Hwang's auction could see no violation. Hwang blogged the notification from eBay here.

The other thing I got from Hwang's blog was How to play rock 'n' roll. Watch it. It's hilarious.
