Apple Settles With "Tiger" Leaker

CNET is reporting that one of the men that leaked Apple's next-gen "Tiger" OS , Doug Steigerwald, has reached a settlement with Apple. It did not discuss the details of that settlement, though it does involve money being paid to Apple, according to Steigerwald. The article says that Doug Steigerwald "disseminated {Tiger] over the Internet, and thousands of unauthorized copies of Apple's software were illegally distributed to the public." Apple has said "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."
