Dear WebMaster:

Apple Computer, Inc. ("Apple") recently noticed that Apple's copyrighted material is available for download at your website http://somethingawful.com.

The Service Source manual for the MacBook Pro is Apple's intellectual property and is protected by U.S. copyright law. Linking to the manual on your website is an infringement of Apple's copyrights. We therefore must insist that you immediately take all necessary steps to remove the Service Source manual and any other Apple copyrighted material from your site and to prevent further unauthorized use or distribution of Apple intellectual property.

Apple reserves its right to contact your Internet Service Provider in the event you do not comply with these demands.

The foregoing is not intended to be a complete statement of the facts, and shall not constitute a waiver of any of Apple’s rights or remedies, all of which are expressly reserved.

We would appreciate a reply by email to copyrightagent@apple.com that you have complied, and we anticipate and appreciate your immediate cooperation.

Sincerely,

Why Apple why? You want to sue a forum over a post that helps people fix one of your defects? But does it really surprise anyone that the lawyers are faster than the techs at responding to something?
