Apple Wins Subpoena Request -- In the latest update in Apple's quest to squelch information leaks, Judge James Kleinberg of Santa Clara County Superior Court ruled last Friday that the news site O'Grady's PowerPage must divulge its confidential sources, describing the information as "stolen property." The judge was careful to note that his ruling should not be construed more broadly than Apple's right to subpoena information from PowerPage's ISP Nfox. The judge also made a distinction between "the public interest" (served by whistleblowers disclosing health, safety, or welfare hazards) and "the interested public" (served by news and enthusiast Web sites). The full text of the decision can be downloaded from The Mac Observer site. Jason O'Grady has said he will appeal the decision. [ACE]
