"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.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
