"Apple Should Think Differently About Blogger Suits"
Today's San Jose Mercury News has an open letter to Apple Computer from a longtime journalist:
I'm a grizzled veteran of the old media, and I sometimes cringe at the amateurish and malicious screeds that masquerade as journalism on the Web. But Apple is trying to punish online journalists for accurately reporting information on matters of intense public interest. That's exactly what journalists should do. .... Fortunately for Apple, this story is still largely confined to the blogosphere -- the online realm of bloggers talking to each other -- and publications that closely follow technology. So it's not too late for you to back down .... I recommend you quietly drop the litigation, tighten your internal security to prevent future leaks and move on.
