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.

Member since:

A court *can* compel you to produce evidence against someone else if you've got it -- or against yourself in a civil case

Exactly-- a *court* can. Not a company. Please remember that I am not living in the US; in my country a court will never take sides with a company, because Dutch law is quite different than from the US ones.

People here keep on forgetting that the US juridical system is quite different than that from the European ones. I strongly suggest the ThinkSecret guys to consider moving to Europe-- it will make them virtually immune for Apple's silencing measures.
