For those unfamiliar with Psystar, they’re the guys who adamantly want to sell OS X on PC hardware. They sold cheap alternatives to Apple products, and were challenged by Apple to cease and desist all activity. The courts issued Psystar a permanent injunction against making Mac clones, though that hasn’t stopped the crazed company from pursuing the case in the most ludicrous ways possible. They’ve now requested an Appeal against their injunction, and of whatever breath of life Psystar has left, they plan to persuade the “court to adopt a radical revision of the Copyright Misuse doctrine that would in effect destroy copyright and force all copyrighted works to be licensed.” A little insane, but expected from the bunch.
TUAW reports Apple’s response, stating that “Psystar’s grossly overbroad per se theory of copyright misuse would eliminate fundamental rights guaranteed by the Copyright Act – the rights to control the reproduction, modification, and distribution of copyrighted works.”
Honestly, this whole saga would have been a lot more awesome if Psystar had made an OS X tablet. I mean, they could have been cool at least.
