Apple agrees to stay subpoenas against Mac sites

Mac site subpoenas stayed

Apple today against two Mac sites that required the sites to divulge information about their sources. The subpoenas were granted to by a California Court in December, but have not been been served. Apple is seeking information about unnamed individuals who have allegedly leaked trade secrets in its "John Doe" civil complaint. eWEEK reports that Apple has agreed to hold off on serving subpoenas until after the Superior Court of Santa Clara County, California has held a hearing in early March on the EFF's request for a protective order for its clients. If the protective order is granted, Apple would be prevented from filing subpoenas against both PowerPage and AppleInsider to get information about the identity of their sources, as well as demanding any unpublished documents related to the resulting stories, according to the report.
