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.”
