In what has turned out to be the "Young And The Restless" of the computer industry, Apple once again finds itself in the legal spotlight. However, if you thought the idea of Cobalt suing Apple to be ridiculous (something that has not actually happened yet), wait until you hear about this one.
Apparently unhappy with the quantity and quality of pre-MACWORLD information that was leaked to the press, Steve Jobs and Apple have filed a lawsuit against "...an unknown individual" for posting Appleis trade secrets on the Internet. According to Apple:
Apple today filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court for Santa Clara County, California against an unknown individual who has posted Apple?s trade secret information on the Internet. The complaint seeks an injunction against further disclosure of Apple?s trade secrets as well as monetary damages.
Even though nobody, seemingly including Apple, has even the slightest idea of who they are attempting to sue the company is looking for monetary compensation.
We could not make this up if we wanted to. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
