Lawyers for and AppleInsider asked a California court on Monday to block subpoenas seeking to identify the source of leaked product details, reports CNET “The subpoenas should not be permitted because Internet journalists deserve the full protection of the First Amendment that their traditional brethren have long enjoyed, the lawyers say in a brief filed in Santa Clara Superior Court. These writers ‘cannot be compelled to disclose the source of any information procured in connection with their journalistic endeavors, nor any unpublished information obtained,’ the brief says. ‘The reporter’s privilege applies to online publication and print publication equally.” The brief was prepared by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and two local law firms.”
