“Apple Computer has reached a settlement with one of the men it sued for online distribution of its unreleased Mac OS X Tiger operating system,” Ina Fried reports for CNET News. “Apple said on Wednesday that it has reached a settlement with 22-year-old Doug Steigerwald. It did not discuss the details of that settlement, though it does involve money being paid to Apple, according to Steigerwald. The company still has legal action pending against two other men in the case, which was filed in December in federal court in San Jose, Calif.”
“Reading from a prepared statement, Steigerwald said that a criminal investigation had been launched against him. In the statement, Steigerwald said that the allegations made by Apple were true and apologized for his actions,” Fried reports.
