Couldn't you get in some legal troubles for buying a back housing containing the apple logo? Last I read (on some random forum), someone's $xxxx shipment of iPhone parts was withheld in customs for this very reason (Trademark infringement).

Be careful!

Here's a site I found that sells the rear casings in every color:

However my problem is that I wish there were some sort of documentation on this. Well, time to watch the teardown 3 times through...
