  • Teen going to jail for selling white iPhones months ahead of time.


    If you haven't heard, 17-year old by the name of Fei Lam made some connections at Foxconn (Apple's official Chinese iPhone manufacturer), and was able to buy a bunch of the yet-unreleased white iPhone 4 faceplates/backplates off them, legally. Fei has been selling them on his website whiteiphonefournow.com for several months at price of $279 but now some trademark lawyer finally heard it through the grapevine, and is getting all bitter about it. LOL

    "I'm very thankful, cause for months I was struggling for an idea that would bootstrap my first startup and help pay for college," says Lam, who hopes to attend NYU and study computer science or business.
    Yesterday, however, Lam received an ominous letter. "I got an email from a private investigator accusing me of selling stolen goods, which I'm 100 percent sure is not the case. They are some kind of anti-counterfeit/trademark firm, which sounds ridiculous, similar to what Apple is bringing up to remove White iPhone 4 Listings on eBay. I don't know how this legal stuff works."


    Lam intends to contact a lawyer and has no plans to take his site down or change his business....He can take heart in the fact that Steve Jobs, along with his partner Steve Wozniak, helped to fund their first business selling "Blue Boxes" that let users make illegal long distance telephone calls.

      Eh... Sounds shady to me. Hard to believe the kid didn't expect to be caught in a whole mess of trouble.
