“Clone Mac maker Psystar has agreed to pay Apple $2.7 million in damages in a deal that will likely bring the company’s sale of unauthorized computers preinstalled with Mac OS X to an end,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“In a joint filing from Apple and Psystar Corporation in a San Francisco court Tuesday, Psystar agreed to pay Apple $1,337,500 in damages over copyright infringement, breach of contract, and violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act,” Hughes reports. “Additional damages and attorneys fees amounted to another $1,337,500, bringing the total to $2.675 million. Psystar had already lost those complaints in a summary judgment from Judge William Alsup in November.”
Hughes reports, “In exchange for the payout, Apple has agreed to not refile claims of trademark infringement, trade dress infringement, trademark dilution, state unfair competition, and common law unfair competition — items that were not ruled on by Alsup in his summary judgment.”
