“Apple Inc. last week added new charges to the federal lawsuit it filed nearly five months ago against a Florida clone maker, claiming that Psystar Corp. broke antipiracy defenses that lock Apple’s operating system to its own hardware,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.

“In a filing dated Nov. 26, Apple amended its original suit of July after it had ‘discovered additional information,'” Keizer reports. “Among the additions is a new accusation — that Psystar violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by dodging copy-protection technologies Apple uses to protect Mac OS X.”

“In its just-revised complaint, Apple also alleged that Psystar was not acting alone, although it did not name names. “Persons other than Psystar are involved in Psystar’s unlawful and improper activities described in this amended complaint,” Apple said. “The true names or capacities, whether individual, corporate or otherwise, of these persons are unknown to Apple. Consequently they are referred to herein as John Does 1 through 10.” Apple said it would reveal the John Does’ names when it uncovered them,” Keizer reports.
