Hi Clayton,

Because they don't issue out their own productivity software? Or is it
because they aren't on such a sue spree? Doesn't matter either way, I get
your drift.

No, because Apple does not appear to be as possessive about the
copyright on its UI as Microsoft is, which has a specific notice on its
Legal page about using parts of its UI and icons in documentation,
including the requirement to obtain authorisation from Microsoft for the
use thereof. The history of the design and copyrights of the Apple UI
has its roots in NextStep / Gnu OpenStep development, the latter of
which is still ongoing today, which may be one of the reasons why Apple
is less inclined to be obsessive about it.
