As far as the Walt Disney Co. is concerned, Steve Jobs was not involved "in any intentional or deliberate acts of misconduct" when he was the chairman of Pixar Animation. In a statement issued on Friday, Disney Chairman John Pepper appeared to be addressing reports that Jobs might have approved backdating options for top Pixar executives prior to the sale of the company to Disney. The matter is currently being scrutinized by federal regulators, who are also looking into similar backdated options issued to executives at Apple, Inc., which Jobs continues to head as chairman.
