“The Mac clone maker being sued by Apple Inc. because it installs Mac OS X on generic Intel-based systems said it bought copies of the operating system from Apple itself, court documents show,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.
“‘Psystar distributes computers with legitimately purchased copies of Mac OS loaded thereon,’ the company said. ‘Many of those copies [were] directly obtained from Apple. While Psystar complies with Section 117(b) of the Copyright Act, Apple attempts to usurp those limitations by telling Psystar and its customers that Apple — and Apple alone — will say ‘whether, how or by whom its software is … distributed or used,”” Keizer reports.
“Apple’s case relies on exactly that; it has claimed from the start of its July 2008 lawsuit that the Mac OS X end-user licensing agreement (EULA) forbids users from installing the operating system on hardware not sold by Apple,” Keizer reports.
“Apple declined to comment on the case, which is slated to go to trial in April,” Keizer reports.
