Mac clone maker Psystar is like a monster from a bad 1980's horror flick. It just won't die. No matter how many times we think Apple and the legal system have pounded the final nail into Psystar's coffin, the copycat monster keeps waking up and evading the graveyard to live another day. From Engadget:
We're still not clear on whether Psystar is still in business, or if it's selling anything other than T-shirts, but the would-be Mac cloner isn't totally out of the game yet: it's filed an official notice of appeal in the California court, which means it's going to try and fight that decisive victory and injunction won by Apple a month ago.
But in dramatic fashion, late this week Psystar resurfaced to file a "notice of appeal" over the injunction presently restricting the company from distributing and selling its hardware imbued with Apple's operating system.
Just based on the simple open-and-shut legal reasoning involved in the decision -- surprise, you can't copy, modify, and resell a copyrighted work without permission -- we'd say this appeal is a long shot, but we didn't go to Harvard Law School like Psystar attorney Eugene Action.
Let's be honest: we never, ever, want this story to end.
