Apple Settles With Source of Tiger Leak

While it continues to pursue lawsuits against those who leaked information on its upcoming products, Apple has settled one suit with an individual who leaked a pre-release copy of "Tiger," the next release of Mac OS X. Apple sued Doug Steigerwald, a student, in late December for sharing the beta code.

Steigerwald will pay an undisclosed sum of money to Apple, but is still under investigation by the federal government for his actions. "Although I did not mean to do any harm, I realize now that my actions were wrong and that what I did caused substantial harm to Apple and for that I am truly sorry," Steigerwald said in a prepared statement.
