Steve Jobs tribute logo sparks copyright dispute

Three artists battle over ownership rights

The day after Steve Jobs’ death last week, Reuters published a story that has been marked as incorrectly attributing ownership of the commemorative Apple logo to a student in Hong Kong.

The logo, which incorporates Steve Jobs’ face into the Apple company logo, received a surplus of attention after going viral when Jonathan Mak published it online after learning of Jobs’ death. Reuters named the Hong Kong design student as the creator of the image in an article the morning after Jobs’ death, which prompted a clash among two other men who have since claimed ownership of the logo.
