Prominent Internet lawyer to defend Think Secret<br><br>January 19 - 15:12 EST Terry Gross of Gross & Belsky LLP will defend MacNews site Think Secret from a lawsuit brought againtst it by Apple. Gross has "been at the center of Internet law since the early days of the net," and served as the first counsel to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). "Think Secret's reporting is protected by the First Amendment," Gross said. "The Supreme Court has said that a journalist cannot be held liable for publishing information that the journalist obtained lawfully. Think Secret has not used any improper newsgathering techniques. We will be filing a motion asking the Court to dismiss this case immediately on First Amendment grounds under a California statute which weeds out meritless claims that threaten First Amendment rights." Apple sued Think Secret earlier this month claiming that it illegally published company trade secrets.<br><br>

I think Apple needs to nip this PR disaster in the bud before any more damage is done. They also need to rein in the scumbag legal team and stop them from starting these frivolous, bullying lawsuits in the first place.<br><br>
