Apple sues ‘Tiger’ file sharers

The computer giant has sued three men for releasing preview versions of its latest Mac OSX software onto file-sharing sites prior to its release. It said two versions of the operating system, codenamed Tiger, were put onto the net in October and December. It is the second time in two weeks Apple has taken legal action to protect its future products. Tiger is due to be shipped in early 2005.

Last week, it filed a lawsuit against “unnamed individuals” who leaked details about new products onto the web.
