Court to Blogger: You Ain’t No Journalist!

In a posting at WineTalk.com, Susanne found that a preliminary ruling, issued Thursday, a Santa Clara County Superior Court judge said that the three blogging sites, which had disclosed information about Apple’s upcoming products, did not have the same legal protections that shield journalists, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The story was originally published by San Jose Mercury News.

This case is really a high-tech intellectual property dispute but regardless will probably set the first legal precedent for bloggers of all types.
