Apple withdraws legal threats against BluWiki

Apple has withdrawn its threat of legal action against OdioWorks, which runs the BluWiki website. In April, OdioWorks representatives, with the help of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, sued Apple over threats made to the company over content hosted on the wiki. At issue was a group of “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. Following the receipt of a letter from Apple saying it was withdrawing its cease & desist demands and stating that “Apple no longer has, nor will it have in the future, any objection to the publication of the iTunesDB Pages,” the Electronic Frontier Foundation is dismissing its suit.
