Wants injunction against the clone ranger
Jobs' Mob have asked a California district judge to
permanently restrict the Mac clone makers Psystar to prevent them from selling
the Mac clones.
Apple recently won a session of hearing in court against
Psystar founding them guilty of violating Apple’s rights to reproduce OS X,
distribute it, and to create derivative works. Legal eagles for Apple say that Psystar has already
caused irreparable damage to Apple and they want a permanent judgement against
Psystar under the US Copyright Act and Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
If the injunction is made it will stop it from directly
or indirectly infringing on its copyrights for Mac OS X; and circumventing any
of Apple’s technological protection measures in Mac OS X, including those that
can generate Apple’s decryption key. Apple fears that Psystar’s “unlawful conduct” and
encourage others to follow Psystar’s pattern of deliberate disregard of
well-established law. Or rather it will encourage others to buy Apple software
and do what they like with it.
Apple sued Psystar back in July 2008 suing them for
copyright infringement, breach of contract, trademark and trade infringement,
and unfair competition.
