Institutional Press Afraid to Stand Up Against Trade Secret Law
Matt Welch writes about Apple v. Does for Reason (Who Gets to Play Journalist?). He passes briefly over the tired blogger vs. journalist debate and into the more interesting arguments regarding why trade secrets get so darn much protection anyway and castigates the institutional press for acquiesing in this.
But you can also argue that in the balance of free expression, the legalities just dont matter that much. Free speech seems to become more legally constrained each year, yet free expression continues to boom. If bloggers are left unshielded, that will only serve to enlarge an already conspicuous paradox: that the people with the most press freedom seem the least willing to use it.
