The iPod is a real physical three-dimensional object. You're allowed
to make pictures of physical objects, without violating copyright.
For instance, if you buy an iPod and take a photograph of it, Apple
can't say anything much about that. Similarly, you can draw an iPod,
and Apple has no copyright claim on that, either.
Now, if the image is taken from a picture that Apple released, that
would be a different thing. If there were an iPod logo on their site,
for instance, and you copied that... in that case you wouldn't just
be expressing an iPod, you'd be copying *their* expression of it.
