A 54 year old man in Kentucky is being sued by the Apple Computer company for infringement. He recently learned that he has pancreatic cancer and Apple claims that since their CEO had it, it belongs to Apple and everyone else who gets it is stealing from them.
When asked for a statement, an Apple representative said "We will vigorously protect our IP. Anything done by anyone at Apple belongs to us, including contracting cancer."
The Kentucky man could not be contacted for comment as he died from the pancreatic cancer, which Apple is now, apparently, suing him for in a separate case
