green-my-apple-ipod

Newer Older

I made this from a real Ipod ad for the Green My Apple campaign, and it was one of many creatives which the Apple user community put together to ask Steve Jobs to clean up Apple's act.

We won this campaign, and Apple today has removed all the chemicals we sought removed from their product line, and become a strong industry advocate of reducing ewaste. Power of the customer, writ large. Thanks everyone who made this happen!

    I love the McLuhan quote you have in your blog!
    I actually love all of Marshall McLuhan work.

    Aww, I guess Google pulled the plug on my top-ranked search result, and views have plateaued at 54,000...

    Hi Nney, I haven´t read Howard Bloom´s book, but it´s on my list now! The world is full of great books, and terrible airports. :-)

    This work is derived from an Apple advert, it should not be tagged as Creative Commons.

    It's a parody commenting on Apple's products, Edward, and therefore protected under free speech laws that have been tested many times in Europe and North America.

    I was involved in a campaign which used the Exxon/Esso logo to make a comment on their global warming policies -- courts in both France and the US threw out Exxon's challenge that the work was derived from their trademark and therefore a violation of their copyright.

    It would be illegal to profit from it, for sure: the political parody protection vanishes as soon as you put it on a T-shirt and charge a buck for it -- but this particular license forbids commercial use as well, so I stand by the Creative Commons license I've created this under.

    I love this poster, it shows the way that everyone wants more and more every day without caring about the planet.
    I love it!!!
