Torrential Tiger Lawsuit Over


Apple has settled its lawsuit with one of three men it sued for distributing beta versions of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. "While Apple will always protect its innovations, it is not our desire to send students to jail," said Apple spokesman Steve Dowling. "We are pleased that Mr. Steigerwald has taken responsibility for his actions and that we can put this lawsuit behind us." Twenty-two year old Steigerwald said he would pay an undisclosed sum to Apple.

That's about what I expected would happen. Message sent.

  1. Agreed this was the correct course of action... but as to how bad the message was is depenant on how much he has to pay Apple.

    A few hundered, a few thousand, tens of thousands?

    I am betting on a few thousand, and less and thats to mild of a slap, any more and thats being over kill.
