HBO Blocks 3-D Printed Game of Thrones iPhone Dock The tiny, detailed, 3-D printed Iron Throne iPhone dock is no more, thanks to a cease-and-desist letter from HBO, which owns the rights to the Game of Thrones series. 

Fernando Sosa, who modeled the throne in Autodesk Maya based on still images from the series, began selling it beside other 3-D printed sculptures on his site, nuPROTO.com. But while it was still in pre-order, HBO found out. “I guess it kind of snowballed in publicity,” says Sosa. “I didn’t think it would get this big. And all of a sudden, we got a letter from HBO.” That letter told him to knock it off, asserting rights not just to the series or the throne, but to replicas inspired by it. “While we appreciate the enthusiasm for the Series that appears to have inspired your creation of this device, we are also concerned that your iron throne dock will infringe on HBO’s copyright in the Iron Throne,” says the letter.
