Apple wants to halt publication of App Store book over 'secrets'

San Francisco, Feb 20 (IANS): In a bid to stop the sale of a new insider book named "App Store Confidential," Apple has sent a cease and desist letter to the author Tom Sadowski and its publisher Murmann Verlag.

Lawyers working for Apple have ordered Sadowski and his publisher to cease deliveries of book orders, as well as recall all copies of the book that are already in circulation, and to destroy all manuscripts of the book.

Publisher Murmann and the author have so far resisted the demands from the iPhone maker, Apple Insider reported on Wednesday.

The iPhone maker is taking legal action against the author and a former German App Store manager Sadowski and publisher Verlag to stop circulation of a book about his work, under allegations it reveals confidential "business secrets" that the author wasn't allowed to disclose.

Released on Tuesday in Germany, the book "App Store Confidential" by Sadowski is said to be a behind-the-scenes view of how the Apple App Store works from the former manager's viewpoint.

The book also details Sadowski's journey into Apple, his personal experiences in working inside the App Store, and his meetings with Apple CEO Tim Cook.
