Apple copied Egypt's pyramid upside down.

They're pissed. Beware of mummies, Apple.

In other news, Apple has patented the following shapes:
- circle
- square
- rectangle
- triangle

Also, any variation of "line" and/or "curved"

Not to mention apples. Someday they will sue Washington State.

Considering that UT has enough oil under its West Texas land grants that they could BUY Apple, I don't think it's a real problem.

Now there might be an issue with a software implementation that darkened various curved, concentric lines in response to WiFi signal quality, but UT ain't doing that. They ARE capitalizing on the common notice of that icon-it's iconic, after all-but not much more.
