The saga between Psystar and Apple is reaching a sad point. Apple has held firm against the claims of the Mac clone maker and Psystar keeps pilling on new Apple offensives. The latest simply claims that Apple cannot sue Psystar ’cause OS X isn’t covered by copyright protection.
We’re still waiting on our Bar results, but something says that Apple didn’t forget to copyright OS X. This is the firm that deals with fake iPods on a weekly basis and you would think that they have the copyright thing down by now.
Apple “is prohibited from bringing action against Psystar for the alleged infringement of one or more of the plaintiff’s copyrights for failure to register said copyrights with the copyright office as required” by law, Psystar claims.
But what if OS X indeed slipped through the cracks and the paperwork for the copyright was never filed?
Well, Psystar probably could continue making its clones on that basis. Other Mac clone makers would probably pop up over night. Then the monkeys and apes would revolt, taking over a small African country. The Euro would become useless, and civilization would collapse. The only humans left alive if Apple forget to copyright OS X would be on the space station and remote Arctic stations. So, as you can see, there is a lot riding on this legal proceeding. God help us all.
