There is obviously a lot of missing information at this point but here are a few thoughts. First, in California it is illegal to buy goods from a seller when the seller does not have the authority to sell that item. Whether this prototype iPhone was stolen or found, the person who had it did not have the right to sell the phone to Gizmodo for $5,000. Second, you do not want to screw over Apple. They are notoriously protective of their R&D and I’m not surprised at all that they are going after anyone involved in this story. There are numerous stories of the crazy security that Apple employs in their headquarters and development area and you know Jobs is going to love going after Chen and Gizmodo.

In some ways this is just deserts. Yeah Gizmodo probably got a gagillion page views from this story, but at the very least they knew what they were doing was not ethical if not illegal. Gizmodo also outed the engineer who lost the phone and this has caused him all sorts of public humiliation.

With that said the police and Apple may run into some problems trying to prosecute this case. California, like many states, has a journalist shield law. These shield laws prohibit warrants from seizing evidence from a “publisher, editor, reporter” and other journalist type folks. If Chen worked for the New York Times, there is very little question that he would be protected. The interesting question will be whether Chen will be considered a journalist since he works for a blog.

This case illustrates the blurry division between journalists and bloggers. I don’t know how to exactly define the difference. I do not consider myself a journalist, rather a blogger who comments on news and tech. However, I think it is reasonable that people like Chen be considered as a blogger who is also a journalists. We’ll see how this shakes out, but I’m guessing there will be more to come.
