Apple sued for threatening First Amendment rights

Posted in Uncategorized by tipo on April 28, 2009

BluWiki, a public wiki site, sued Apple for curtailing users First Amendment rights.  Apple noticed that people were sharing information about how to use an iPhone or iPod with third-party software (something Apple doesn’t allow).  So in November 2008, Apple demanded the wiki remove the pages that discussed the above.  Wikis, however, are for the open sharing of information.  And BlueWiki doesn’t run advertisements or any other models for commercial revenue.  It seems that BluWiki has a very strong free speech case.
