Full Article.Civil liberties group the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has stepped into a legal fight between three US online journalists and Apple.
Apple wants the reporters to reveal 20 sources used for stories which leaked information about forthcoming products, including the Mac Mini.
The EFF has asked the California Superior court for an order to stop Apple from pursuing the sources.
It argues that the journalists are protected by the American constitution.
The EFF says the case threatens the basic freedoms of the press.
