The judge was quoted as saying that the bloggers "are doing nothing more than feeding the public's insatiable desire for information."
Excuse me? whaaa? Is this not the definition of journalism? (I'll concede that the definition has been somewhat stretched as of late.... thanks Mr. Guckert)
While I understand that Apple has a right to their intellectual property but reporters/bloggers also have the right to report news (and this IS important news to a large segment of the computer community) when it is thrown their way. Using this judge's statements I would say a pretty large portion of the news I heard today could fall under his condemnation.
At least Fox news is free and clear... very little true information being distributed there.
Bob Garfield of On The Media has a good interview this week with Susan Crawford, professor of internet law at Cardozo Law School about this case.
