Apple Leaves Bluwiki Alone

Posted Jul 23, 2009

Apple has dropped it lawsuit against Bluwiki. Bluwiki is a free wiki site that contains mostly anonymously authored pages. Apple got angry when someone created a wiki page that explained how to sync the iPod and iPhone using software other than iTunes.

The wiki page talked about reverse engineering the iTunesDB file format that Apple includes in its devices so they only sync with iTunes.

The lawsuit did not go well for Apple. The Electronic Frontier Foundation pressured Apple to drop the suit. It even issued a lawsuit against Apple.

Apple finally caved and withdrew the suit.
