It seems that the Apple has no luck in finding the leaker.
The big companies like to keep their work secret. So they try everything to keep it secret. But what do you do when information leak?
This happened to Apple. Someone got informations about their inner work (“Asteroid” by the name) and they went to court to resolve this problem. But they didn’t managed to resolve it.
Here is what CNET says:
A lower court had ruled Apple should have access to the records of AppleInsider as it tried to unmask who had revealed information about an unreleased product. On Friday, though, the appeals court ruled that the communications between the product leaker and the enthusiast Web site are protected by federal and state law.
If you don’t know, journalists are trying to protect their sources from prosecution. This means that will do anything not to expose it.
“Today’s decision is a victory for the rights of journalists, whether online or offline, and for the public at large”
Its lawyers say in court documents that Web scribes are not “legitimate members of the press” when they reveal details about forthcoming products that the company would prefer to keep confidential.
Shame on Apple for considering online publications only a joke to them. Shame on you.
Until we will have more details about this issue we are keeping quiet and maybe Apple will say “I’m sorry” to the press.
