Apple has identified the employee it believes leaked news on the Internet about unannounced products.
The company has amended its recent lawsuit to identify the anonymous 'John Doe 1' first accused in the court. The individual's name, as recorded in amendments to the court documents, is Juan Gutierrez, MacCentral reports. It remains unclear whether Gutierrez is still an Apple employee.
Apple is angry that the individual exposed details about its multiprocessing Power Macs and Optical Mouse before their introduction at Macworld Expo, New York last July. Apple wants financial damages and an injunction against further leaks.
'John Doe 1' was identified by sifting through information subpoenaed from Yahoo last month. The information was first leaked through Yahoo’s GeoCities subsidiary.
