The Dam Bursts...

Today from BBC news:

"A California judge said in a preliminary ruling that bloggers should not have the same protection afforded to journalists under US law. "

A couple of Bloggers have been taken to court by Apple computers because they leaked information about some new products. The judge has so far ruled that the bloggers (unlike journalists) legally can be made to disclose their sources to Apple - presumably so that Apple can punish it's offending employees.

Bloggers everywhere, take care.

We all know the perils of blogging about work - now it could be written in the law.

Please visit The committee to protect bloggers today.
