Steve makes a plea to Steve

Wozniak defends student in Tiger leak lawsuit

Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, has commented on Apple's lawsuit against a student for illegally distributing beta versions of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger on a file-sharing Web site.

"Everything fits into place that this is an unintentional oversight and the interviewed student appears to be one of the most honest people on this planet..." "I have to question who is most right in this case. I wish that Apple could find some way to drop the matter. In my opinion, more than appropriate punishment has already been dealt out. In this age of professional spammers and telemarketers making fortunes, we're misusing our energies to pursue these types of small time wrongdoers. I will personally donate $1,000 to the Canadian student's defense."

FixYourThinking note: Don't get this confused with the lawsuit against Think Secret. I wish Wozniak would have added that he thought it necessary for Apple to continue that particular litigation.
