Court Improperly Redacts PDF in Apple Case

For at least the third time this year, poor redaction practices have leaked sensitive information to the public.

Apple see itself as the latest victim, this time because a California judge improperly redacted files in Apple’s copyright infringement lawsuit with Samsung.

According to Atlantic Wire’s Adam Clark Estes, “U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh … attempted to redact nearly two dozen sentences or short fragments. But because of a formatting characteristic in the prior electronic version, the redacted material can be viewed by copying text from the PDF and pasting it into another document.”
