Although the trademark has expired, in most countries the copyrights of
any logos or written materials are still owned by Apple (i.e. the light
bulb) and thus off-limits for t-shirts. But we could use the name for a
similar product without retribution (imagine a far future hand-held
running a completed Einstein simulator, for example).
I am not a lawyer in any jurisdiction, but that's my understanding. If
anyone could work out with Apple the use of the Newton logos, I would
buy such a t-shirt, though:)
