Sun tries to stifle Web site story

    Sun Microsystems has threatened a small U.K.-based technology hardware Web site with legal action over a story that included product information that was posted by mistake on Sun's Web site. Mike Magee, editor of The Inquirer, said he received a letter from Sun's lawyers Nabarro Nathanson on Tuesday instructing him to remove several stories from the site by Thursday or the computing giant would seek a court injunction.

    Magee said he subsequently took down the story, together with two others referring to it, but added he had been unable to comply with another request from Sun's lawyers for him to surrender or destroy a PDF document and to sign an undertaking saying he had done so. "I cannot sign the undertaking because it asks me to get rid of documents I never had," said Magee.
