In another recent legal filing, last month Apple filed suit
against three people for file-sharing a beta build of Tiger via
BitTorrent. DrunkenBlog has an interesting interview with one of the
defendants. Choice quote:
I made the foolish assumption that since I wasn’t a developer,
and I had a copy that it would be ok if I shared it with 5 or 6
fellow mac fanatics.
What he really means, I think, is that he didn’t think Apple would
notice or care if shared it with “5 or 6 fellow mac fanatics”, not
that he thought it was “ok”.
