Apple Puts Hold on Web Site Subpoenas

Apple has agreed to put a hold on subpoenas issued to Mac enthusiast Web sites until a judge hears arguments from the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The EFF is asking the Superior Court of Santa Clara County in California to proactively block Apple's requests for information on individuals that leaked company "trade secrets."

Apple's "John Doe" lawsuit has targeted Web sites to discover who tipped off the press about an upcoming FireWire-based interface for GarageBand, code-named Asteroid. The suit has sparked an outcry across the Internet from many who feel journalists should not be forced to reveal their sources, and has prompted the EFF to offer legal counsel.
