While ThinkSecret and others have tried to persuade Apple to drop their lawsuits against sites that posted leaked info about products, the lawsuits have moved forward. It looks like Apple has won the first round, as a judge told the sites that they do need to reveal who leaked the info to them. The EFF, who is defending the sites, say they'll appeal the decision. While this might not seem like such a big deal, it may eventually set a precedent on just what kind of protections independent writers have online.
