Apple Loses Appeal on Product Leaker

A three judge state appeals panel ruled today in California that Apple could not subpoena a web site (AppleInsider) for records relating to communications on leaked products.  Apple has been determined to find out who gave information on an unreleased product, a break-out box used to connect musical instruments to a computer.  The court ruled that bloggers were entitled to the same privileges that allowed journalists to protect confidential sources.  Onward to the California Supreme Court!
