Footage of Apple's late co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs may be released to the public after being played in an antitrust court case just last week. Lawyers representing the Associated Press, Bloomberg and CNN have filed a motion with the courts to have said deposition media – recorded back in 2011 – made available. According to the CNET report:
The plaintiff's lawyers in the case were asked by Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, on Apple's request, to treat the video as "regular testimony," meaning it can be viewed and reported by those attending court but cannot be shown elsewhere. Judge Rogers did not "seal" the evidence, however, leaving open the possibility it may be made available at a later date.
Today's filing follows an official email request made Sunday by Burke, to which Bill Isaacson, Apple's lead attorney, replied Sunday night, "Apple does not consent to your request. We are preparing a substantive response to your points and will get that to you tonight hopefully." No such filing has yet been made on behalf of Apple's request to keep the video restricted to the courtroom.
Lawyers representing the media outlets argue that there simply isn't any reason as to why the court should prevent the public access to the video footage of the late Steve Jobs. The transcript of the video has already been made public too, further strengthening the case to have the two-hour video published as well.
