Apple sued over legal threats made to BluWiki

Apple has been sued by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and representatives of OdioWorks, which runs the BluWiki website, after Apple made legal threats to the company over content hosted on the wiki. At issue is a group of pages, referred to as the iTunesDB pages, that contained information on how to use an iPod or iPhone with third-party software. Apple legal sent a letter demanding the pages be removed, arguing that the content constituted copyright infringement and a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s (DMCA’s) prohibition on circumventing copy protection measures. OdioWorks’ suit against Apple seeks a declaratory judgment that the discussions do not violate any of the DMCA’s anti-circumvention provisions, and do not infringe any copyrights owned by Apple.
