Condé Nast Subpoenas Titans Of Digital Industry For Assistance

conde-nastIts sort of a perfect metaphor — Condé Nast is having problems with their digital group and is seeking assistance from the titans of the digital age. However in this instance, they aren’t looking for expertise in how to stay viable , they want datalogs from Google and AT&T. Keith Kelly reports in the NY Post Today , that Condé Nast has a hacker problem, and have filed subpoenas to get what they need.

Writing in his Media Ink column, Kelly reports:

Condé Nast has corralled a pair of big-name Internet players in its bid to stop hackers from infiltrating the publisher’s computer network.

The owner of magazines like Vogue, The New Yorker and Bon Appetit, last week got permission from a federal judge to issue expedited subpoenas to Google and AT&T to try to obtain the identities of at least five hackers Condé claims are responsible for the breach.

The subpoenas are the latest chapter in S.I. Newhouse’s recently filed copyright infringement suit against the hackers who got their hands on material from Condé mags before publication, including GQ’s Men of the Year issue, and the December issues of Vogue, Lucky and Teen Vogue, which ended up on the Web site FashionZag.
