Apple can’t decide what constitutes “legitimate journalism”

Interesting court verdict in the US:

a California appeals court decided against Apple today in the company’s bid to force bloggers to turn over sources who leaked information about the Apple product codenamed “Asteroid”… the appeals court roundly rejected [Apple’s] notions as contrary to California’s reporter’s shield law and the state Constitution, effectively stating that it wasn’t Apple’s place to decide what constitutes “legitimate journalism,” and that Apple could have investigated the leak of trade secrets themselves without drawing the websites into the mix.
