Counterpunch: Psystar Prepares To Sue Apple For Antitrust Violations

Renegade Mac clone-maker Psystar isn’t taking the infringement suit filed by Apple lying down. The company is suing Apple for anti-trust violations in its attempt to have the Mac OS unbundled from the hardware, breaking the exclusivity of the Apple hardware/software and opening the platform to knock-off makers. IBM faced the issue of anti-trust lawsuits surrounding bundling issues decades ago, so the Psystar position may not be as far fetched as it first appears. A court decision may determine whether Psystar becomes a substantial company or a faded footnote in computing history.
