Macintosh rumour web site ThinkSecret.com is facing a legal attack by Apple, on the grounds that they divulged information about the company's newest products. The information turned out to be pretty accurate (which has Apple worried and desperate to find the source of the info.) Apple's resulting lawsuit targets the 19-year-old publisher of the Think Secret Web, Harvard student Nicholas Ciarelli, aka Nick dePlume. Ciarelli, who originally feared that he would never in a month of Sundays be able to afford the legal fees involved, has now found Terry Gross, a partner in the San Francisco law firm of Gross & Belsky, to defend him, reportedly working pro bono. Ciarelli claims that Apple is in violation of the First amendment by trying to silence the news publications, and is fighting back. Good for him.
