Forbes: ‘Apple Bites The Fans That Feed It’

Lisa DiCarlo has written an article on Forbes with her take, along with a Boston attorney who specializes in intellectual property law, about Apple’s recent move to sue the Think Secret Web site for publishing material about upcoming Apple products. DiCarlon writes that Apple ” has to be the only tech company blessed with widespread coverage of every new product, despite the lack of outbound reach by its PR team. And, much of that is due to its fans, who have created dozens of Web sites with news and commentary about Apple products, links to resources, downloads and message boards.” In the article, Boston attorney Bruce Sunstein is quoted as saying “A fair amount of buzz doesn’t hurt Apple’s business. And, to the extent that Apple sues its customer base; it has to think twice about biting the hand that feeds it.”
