"OpenMac" Not Open for Much Longer

Psystar, which made headlines back in April for its $399 “OpenMac” Mac clone, is making headlines again today–in law-related media. Apple (AAPL) has filed suit against the Florida company, alleging violations of its shrink-wrap license, trademark and copyright. “Apple licenses the use of its Macintosh operating system software for use only on Apple-labeled hardware,” the company argues in the suit, adding that Psystar’s alleged infringement “is and continues to be intentional, willful, and in conscious disregard of Apple’s rights.”

Odd that it’s taken Apple this long to drop the hammer on Psystar, but now that it has, the company’s days are almost certainly numbered.
