[quote name='Overstim']1- This case was so wildly misrepresented and misunderstood. They weren't suing to reveal the identity of legitimate or even illegitimate journalists, they were suing to disclose the names of people who VIOLATED THEIR NDAs- a LEGAL document! What good are NDAs if they cant be enforced? The judges' ruling on this was a big mistake.I disagree that it was misrepresented or misunderstood. Everyone clearly understood what Apple wanted and why. The problem is, Apple sued journalists, whose business interests lie in keeping their sources safe, and who had nothing to do with these NDA violations, costing them, as the article pointed out, at least $700,000 in total.Now, if you still think it's ok for Apple to sue people who were simply protecting their business interests, who had no part in violating these NDAs, and who ended up having to spend money to defend themselves, that's your right, but personally, I think Apple could have handled that a LOT better.
