It's about setting an example. Gizmodo profited from the release of Apple's company secrets. What's to stop people from trying this in the future?
Newspapers and reporters profited from the release of tobacco companies' secrets. They received leaked internal memos and published them.
You want them arrested? You want them stopped? Do you honestly believe that reporting a company secret equals theft? Honestly?
You want companies arresting reporters for reporting and *gasp* profiting from reporting company secrets? You think this is good?
That is some seriously scary stuff.
