gerüchteseite zu verklagen find ich lächerlich.
bei einer solchen marketingpolitik wie sie apple führt, ist es ja logisch das geruchte pupliziert werden. *kopfschüttelndzusteveblick*

Eben, bis jetzt war es nur ein Gerücht, nun haben sie sich selber verraten, wenn es den wirklich so kommen wird und sie das Produkt nicht erst später oder gar nicht auf den Markt bringen. Gerüchte gab es bis jetzt vor jeder Keynote und Apple sollte, wenn sie alles geheim behalten wollen, lieber die Löcher in den eigenen Reihen stopfen, anstatt Fanseiten zu verklagen, denn das gibt nur böses Blut.HAL schrieb:... Ich denke das an dem
Headless Mac etwas dran sein muss wenn Apple so reagiert.

Apple Computer, Inc. has filed suit against XXX XXX members
Members of the XXX XXX Community,
Many of you are still questioning our motives surrounding the disabling, and later the deletion of, the torrent of Apple's pre-release beta of Mac OS X Tiger dubbed Build 8A323. You've all had many questions, and we've been carefully mulling over how to answer your concerns. Now we're prepared to provide you with an answer that is clear as to the issue at hand.
The torrent was brought to the attention of Apple Computer's Legal team who subsequently contacted the site administrators, as well as some of the volunteer staff, to request the torrent's removal. The torrent was then disabled with a note instructing other staff members to not re-enable the torrent. Because of the nature of this incident, we wanted to ascertain as much information as possible about what has happened and what will happen in the future before making a statement.
The Apple Developer Relations team has asked, and we've complied to the best of our abilities, that all pre-release torrents originating from the Apple Developer Connection be disabled; you'll find that all Tiger builds have been either disabled or deleted. As such, we'd like to ask that no one attempt to upload further pre-release software builds from the Developer program. Apple has many reasons for their decisions not to allow us to offer these torrents to you, and we -- the XXX XXX Staff -- must abide by their wishes as the developers of the software in question.
Furthermore, Apple has asked that all users who have downloaded this software without possessing an Apple program membership which allows you legal access to this software to delete all copies which may have been downloaded.
We're here to host a Mac community and to serve torrents, to have a learning experience in building a peer-to-peer community. Users are responsible for content which they upload. Moderators and Administrators respond to any valid legal complaints in the manner which the staff feels is appropriate and addresses the concerns of the complaint.
Remember that no one on XXX is anonymous -- no matter what precautions you take, XXX needs REAL, EXACT IP information to properly route traffic among peers. Just because we don't list full IPs and usernames on the tracker stats page doesn't mean that users who wish to won't have the ability to get this information. Just keep this in mind as you contribute and take content from this tracker; you should be prepared to assume the risks that may come from participating in a non-anonymous, non-encrypted file sharing network.
In light of what has recently taken place, we are going to be making some major changes. We are first going to be migrating to and creating a new forum for all the users. The tracker will keep running but we will make some changes. We will disable the ability to integrate torrent information in the forum. However, we will also enable RSS accessibility. There will be other major changes - possibly even moving to a new tracker system. The system we have now is very functional but I'm certain you all can see some deliquencies which not only reside in our tracker but in just about any other tracker on the Internet. We have been working on most of these changes already but have decided to implement them sooner than anticipated.
I'm sure most of you have read the news presented by the Mac Observer about 'the XXX Website' and three of it's users for which a suit has been filed. The three users, ******, *******, and ******, are all users of XXX XXX, and 'the XXX Website' is [url ]www.XXX.com[/url]. Currently, none of the operators/owners of the site have been included in the filing. These users have requested that they not be contacted about donations or the court filings. While we know you all want to help, the users have been working with Apple Legal to bring resolve. In addition to the three users, Apple also specified 25 John Does in their filing. It has not yet been made clear who the John Does represent.
