Legal The Electronic Frontier Foundation last week won the right to unseal court documents related to Apple's efforts to subpoena the sources of online journalists. The documents, previously sealed by the Court and unavailable to the journalists and their attorneys, show that Apple moved to subpoena the reporters' sources before conducting a thorough investigation within the company.

If people know that any journalist they speak to can be compelled to reveal their sources, people will stop talking to journalists. If journalists know that they can be jailed for legal activities, they will stop printing.

Exactly. Even though I work here on a voluntary basis, this still scares the pajeezers out of me. I'm glad I;m living in a less Sue-happy country.
