Did Apple Seriously Forbid a Guy From Selling iPad Cutting Boards?

Well, this is awkward: According to a fellow named Dean Kaplan, Apple told him to stop making and selling cutting boards that look like iPads. Supposedly the reason given was that there are likeness issues.

What on earth, Apple? It's just a piece of wood with a bit of paint on it, not a realistic iPad clone. No one's going to confuse this with a real iPad. [Dean on Software via App Advice]
