Greenpeace: We're thieves, but Apple are the bad guys!

In a quite familiar parody, Greenpeace decided to make a "mock APPLE.COM"

And just like the iTunesISbogus website created by DOWNHILLBATTLE.ORG there seems to be some thievery involved.

DOWNHILLBATTLE.ORG used Apple's copyrighted images (where in my opinion they crossed the lines of Fair Use) ... it appears as if Greenpeace has actually gone a step further that may not fall under Fair Use: copying code.

From Daring Fireball:

Greenpeace ‘Recycles’ JavaScript From

Compare and contrast [the] JavaScript from Greenpeace’s new Apple sub-site to [the] JavaScript from I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that they didn’t get permission from Apple for this.

* Thanks to John Gruber for pointing this out
