Apple 2 / Nick 0

...

As reported by MacMinute:

A California judge ruled Friday that Apple has the right to subpoena the electronic records of a Mac site that published details on an unreleased product. "The judge said that Apple can go ahead and obtain records from Nfox, the e-mail service provider to Mac enthusiast site PowerPage," reports CNET News.com. "In the ruling, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge James P. Kleinberg ruled that Apple's interests in protecting its trade secrets outweighed the public interest in the information. Apple has been seeking the right to subpoena the Mac sites to learn the identities of the worker or workers who leaked information about Asteroid, an unreleased music product. In the case, filed late last year, Apple is not suing the Mac sites themselves, but rather those who leaked the information."
