Legal A few days ago, technology blog Valleywag's launched its Apple Tablet Scavenger Hunt, a sort-of contest in which people with evidence of the existence of Apple's much-rumoured tablet could win large sums of money. Apple apparently wasn't amused, as the company resorted to its usual tactic whenever it doesn't like something in the press: litigation, litigation, litigation.

I'm sure there are a few patent troll companies who have files suit in East Texas who will disagree with you about the protect all IP statement you made.
I agree that Apple is overly protective but on the other hand they do contribute to quite a few FOSS projects in some of which they have opened up their precious IP to the FOSS world.

If there is no iTablet then the site that has been 'giving prizes etc' is probably breaking one or more laws of a far serious nature than the DMCA.
