Leaked iPhone's Legal Investigation

Who’s to blame for the unintended Apple iPhone 4G preview: Gizmodo, the Apple employee, or Apple itself? The commotion caused by the accidental release is now being investigated by Silicon Valley police, according to PC World. CNET is reporting that a computer-crime task force is leading the investigation, though it’s unclear who would be the responsible party targeted. Tech blog Gizmodo, which paid a healthy sum for the smartphone, may have been in violation of the law, though the finder of the iPhone could be as well. “Everything is preliminary,” though, reports PC World, “and the investigation will only see whether enough evidence exists to press charges.”
