Apple bloggers get press support


Eight US newspapers and the Associated Press agency have thrown their support behind three bloggers sued by Apple.

In March, Apple won the right to see the bloggers' e-mail records to find out who leaked information on upcoming products to them, which they published.

The news organisations have now filed a court brief which says they should be allowed to protect their sources.

If not, they said, it could make journalists wary of publishing stories which are in the public interest.

The press realizes that they ultimately might find themselves in the same legal boat that bloggers are in.
