Apple Wins Judgement Against Psystar for Mac OS X Copyright Infringement
So that means damages ahead for Psystar on the copyright issues just decided on summary judgment, at a minimum. The court asked for briefs on that subject. In short, Psystar is toast. Psystar's only hope now is Florida, and frankly I wouldn't bet the house on that one. Judges notice if you were just found guilty of a similar cause of action in another state.Psystar and Apple have been in legal battle after Psystar began selling Mac clones back in April. Psystar provided modified versions of Mac OS X to run on their generic PC hardware, opening the door for lower-cost Mac clones. Psystar's efforts generated a massive amount of attention and Apple eventually filed suit in July citing copyright violations.
This judgement appears to end Psystar as a business despite continued efforts to establish a legitimate business on generic Mac OS X computers.
