      Yosion Apple Peel Legalities - Can I legally resell this Gadget

      Is this device actually approved by Apple? Because if it isn’t, there may be some legal aspects involved in purchasing and reselling it anyway.

      There is a hot debate going on right now about this. Apple is suing Yosian for infringing on its patents. Not only does the inventor of the Apple Peel use jailbreaking software, it also does not have the license to use the Apple dock connector, Apple claims.

      Jailbreaking, which is the process of freeing a device from software restrictions, is not actually illegal in the US; Apple will not have much of a case there. However, it will probably be able to make a good claim on the other issue.

      All this to say that there have also been complaints of issues with the Apple Peel: It does not connect to 3G, you can only use wi-fi connections, and the sound is garbled.

      This is definitely a gray area and I would stay away from selling this product until all legal issues have been taken care of.

      Even if the litigation from Apple blows over, it will give resellers of the Apple Peel a hard time. The US company Go Solar USA claims that it will start selling Apple Peels soon.
