If I wanted to sell the MP4 players that are identical to Apple Ipods outer image ( By outer Image I mean the Ipods case ), is that considered an infringement? I mean can I sell these to a store? They dont have any type of apple logo. What do you guys think? Remember that these machines only look alike. They dont use the same operating system as the real ipods do. So these machines are completely different.

There are Apple copies and then there are mp4 players which are designed in the same fashion as the Apple nanos. The Apple copies have an Apple iPod box and an Apple logo on the back of the unit. These are illegal and will be taken at customs if noticed. Also, no store will resell them. You may be able to sell mp4 players though.

I doubt they'll do that. Only if they are trying to pass it off as a nano
