I know, I know…..It’s not IBM i news, but Apple once used a POWER chip and I am a hug fan of MacOSX. Pystar won round one of the countersuit in court the other day. Apple I would think is not worried, but this has serious implications, and now there is a company in Gernamy doing the same thing Pystar was doing……
“February 8, 2009 (Computerworld) A federal judge last week ruled that Psystar Corp. can continue its countersuit against Apple Inc., giving the Mac clone maker a rare win in its seven-month-old battle with Apple.
He also hinted that if Psystar proves its allegations, others may then be free to sell computers with Mac OS X already installed.
In an order signed on Friday, U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup gave Psystar the go-ahead to amend its lawsuit against Apple. According to Alsup, Psystar may change that countersuit, which originally accused Apple of breaking antitrust laws, to instead ague that Apple has stretched copyright laws by tying the Mac operating system to its hardware.”
