Apple settles with Tiger leaker

By Derek Sooman on
Apple Computer has reached a settlement with 22-year-old Doug Steigerwald, one of the people at the centre of the case of the online distribution of its unreleased Mac OS X Tiger operating system. Apparently, an undisclosed sum of money was paid to Apple to end the legal action. The company still has legal action pending against two other men in the case, which was filed in December.

"While Apple will always protect its innovations, it is not our desire to send students to jail. We are pleased that Mr. Steigerwald has taken responsibility for his actions and that we can put this lawsuit behind us." - Apple.
