    heh, that's neat.

  4. Nice, but I bet they don't plan on open sourcing their template/CSS.

    I bet you are correct.

    Nor do they need to by any stretch of the GPL. Very cool news.

  8. Allusion, I know they don't have to, but it would be nice to have access to a template like that.

    Nothing really difficult.
    Have a look at the source, have a look at wp-layout.css (so it's probably a 1.2) and here you are...

    Except that you have to worry about copyright on the design....

    Isn't copyright for the content, but
    you need a patent for the design?

  12. Either way, if they don't publicly release it, it's probably not legal for anyone else to use it.

    If a product is not patented, anybody could create the same product and do whatever with it, right?

  14. Yes, but a company does not need to clearly state a patent. They can, however, initiate a lawsuit once they find you using their patented design. Trust me (especially with Apple), unless they tell you that it's publicly available, it's not. Apple calls it, "Intellectual Property".

    I'm not sure, but they don't have any copyright notice in the template (wp-layout.css). Maybe if you use enough of your own makings (heading and others) i guess they won't bark at you. I agree it is a nice basis, and derivative works are allowed, aren't they?

    Just ask politely, and I guess you can have it.

    So if Apple adapted a layout - from who knows where - then someone can use theirs too as a design base. After all, code is code, and there's only so much css to go around :)
    And does anyone seriously think that Apple are going to shut down a blog because of some CSS ?

    "No, you can't ask Apple because apple has no contact points other than first-line helpdesk and sales (have you ever found a mail-address for Apple?)."
    Yes... a simple WHOIS search can easily reveal that information.

    well that's a whole different discussion (with the patent office and so) just see th MS IsNot patent appliance :-) But as said take your inspiration, just don't make an Apple page.

    Looks very nice, simple and matches with the apple header section.
