Apple, Psystar ask for summary judgemets, looking to avoid trial


This Apple -Psystar business sure is hotting up! Both Apple and Psystar have asked for summary judgments based on what they believe to be What’s Going On. Such an action would avoid a pesky trial, which would necessarily costs both companies a whole lot of money.

Apple wants Psystar to be found guilty of copyright infringement and for violating the DMCA.

Psytar wants Apple’s case thrown out because it says hasn’t violated a single thing. Its evidence? Parts of the EULA found in Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6, as well as part of a Phil Schiller deposition.

Psystar, you’ll recall, is that company that sells computers pre-loaded with Mac OS X. Apple says that doing such a thing is a violation of the rights of man and of the citizen.

If the judge doesn’t issue a summary judgement in the favor of either Apple or Psystar, then we’ll be looking at a trial, and we all know that trials are treated as circuses in this country.
