Apple attacks Nokia, Psystar does some legal stuff against Apple, Earth keeps turning


Blah blah blah. More lawsuits. Anyway, Apple is after Nokia for patent infringement after Nokia sued over infringement against Apple. The Nokia case is over some smartphone technology and is a reaction to Nokia’s request that Apple stop exporting the iPhone, iPod, and MacBooks.

Then Psystar appealed the Apple lawsuit in which it paid $2.7 million in damages. It writes:

On the front page of its website, Psystar writes: “We respectfully disagree with courts notion that we are ‘hardcore copyright infringers.’ Psystar has never, and will never, condone software piracy. It’s your software, you should be able to use it where you want to. If you purchase an off-the-shelf copy of OS X Snow Leopard, its your right to use that software.

“A publisher cannot forbid you from reading a book in the bathroom or listening to a music disc while riding your bicycle. There should be no difference in the software realm, no matter how much money Apple or anyone else throws at it. That is the real issue here and what we have always been fighting for.”
