Here’s a plot twist in the Apple vs. Psystar lawsuit. Psystar is going to sue Apple for anticompetitive business practices:
“Miami-based Psystar, owned by Rudy Pedraza, will sue Apple under two federal laws designed to discourage monopolies and cartels, the Sherman Antitrust Act and the Clayton Antitrust Act, saying Apple’s tying of the Mac OS to Apple-labeled hardware is “an anticompetitive restrain of trade,” according to attorney Colby Springer of antitrust specialists Carr & Ferrell. Psystar is requesting that the court find Apple’s EULA void, and is asking for unspecified damages.”
I have to give Psystar credit for having balls of steel trying to fight Apple in the legal arena. But I can’t see it succeeding. Speaking of lawyers, you can bet the iLawyers are getting ready to defend Steve and company against this threat.
Are there any actual lawyers who care to comment on Psystar’s chances?
