Apple reminds employees to act right

Reports indicate that Apple sent out a companywide e-mail this week to employees asking them all to review Apple's Business Conduct Policy. This particular Apple policy outlines how employees of Apple are allowed to act a while representing Apple inside the company and during external events.
 
The original e-mail also reportedly included a video from Apple CEO Tim Cook. That video has now reportedly been removed, but not before text was transcribed.
 
In the video Cook said, "As Dr. Martin Luther King once said, the time is always right to do what's right. At Apple, we do the right thing. Even when it's not easy. If you see something that doesn't meet our standards, speak up. Whether it's a quality issue or a business practice, if it affects Apple's integrity, we need to know about it."
 
The e-mail also has sections written by Apple's SVP and General Counsel Bruce Sewell reminding employees that Apple's policies are based on core values of "Honesty, respect, confidentiality, and the critical obligation of every Apple employee to adhere to legal principles like antitrust and anti-corruption laws."
 
Confidentiality is becoming an increasing problem for Apple with more and more leaks of products coming out of China and other locations had their official launch. A number of prototype components for the iPad Air, iPhone 5S, and iPhone 5C turned up ahead of the official launch of the devices.
