APPLE BRINGS TRADE SECRECY ACTION


An apple a day keeps lawyers at play

The BBC reports that Apple has brought a breach of confidence action in the US against as yet unknown individuals who have revealed details of a new Apple product on the internet. Apple has said that it will amend the complaint once it finds out who the alleged miscreant is. The complaint comes just weeks ahead of the MacWorld conference, where Apple has launched new products in the past. Apple fans have speculated on there being a launch of a new gadget at the 2005 conference.

The IPKat realises how annoying it must be for Apple to have its big launch spoiled, especially if suspicion that there’s a new version coming out puts people off buying iPods as Christmas gifts. Merpel however points out what great publicity the leak and the subsequent legal action could be.
