    Default Apple Wins Lawsuit Against Psystar!
    Well, well. Apple's won its copyright infringement claim against would-be Mac cloner Psystar in California. Anyone surprised? As we've been saying all along, the key argument wasn't the OS X EULA or Psystar's failed monopoly claims, but pure, simple copyright infringement, since Psystar was illegally copying, modifying, and distributing Apple's code. Psystar was also dinged for circumventing Apple's kernel encryption in violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, but that's just another nail in the coffin, really. There's still some legal fireworks to come, as Apple's various other claims like breach of contract, trademark infringement, and unfair competition weren't addressed in this ruling, but those are all secondary issues now -- and we'd expect this decision to have quite an impact on the other case currently ongoing in Florida. We've broken down the highlights after the break, hit up the read link for the PDF and follow along.

    How do you reckon Pystar had some good arguments? Seems like a simple case of copyright theft to me...
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    I wished they won. Seems like Apple won because they have more lawyers!

    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
