Last Friday night, California's Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team entered editor Jason Chen's home without him present, seizing four computers and two servers. They did so using a warrant by Judge of Superior Court of San Mateo. According to Gaby Darbyshire, COO of Gawker Media LLC, the search warrant to remove these computers was invalid under section 1524(g) of the California Penal Code.

Let's try this from the other angle.
Imagine the police found proof that this indeed was all a viral planned by Apple and Gizmodo along?
They are both the benefactors of this leak, Gizmodo for the hits on their site and Apple has free advertising.
Does anyone know yet who made this happen?

I don't know all the details of this story, but...
From what I understand, this phone was left at a bar....someone discovered what it was....Gizmodo bought it from the person who found it (someone who wasn't the owner and had no right to sell it)....the rightful owner, Apple, asked for it to be returned....request was ignored (that makes it stolen property)....law enforcement gets warrant, with probable cause, to search premises for stolen property and proprietary software...
Where did the law enforcement go wrong?

They *DID* return it, right after Apple asked
The police weren't sent there to get the iPhone back.
