Shoemaker Lugz issued a cease and desist order last week against Apple, asking the computer maker to halt using its iPod advertising campaign that features silhouetted figures against a fiery colored, cityscape backdrop, according to a report in Adweek.

An Apple spokeswoman declined comment on the Lugz cease and desist order, noting the iPod ads are still accessible through its iPod and iTunes site.
