The ruling comes after both parties presented their oral argumentsMonday afternoon before U.S. District Judge William Alsup. The judgebanned Psystar from:Copying, selling, offering to sell, distributing or creating derivative works of Mac OS X without authorization from Apple.Intentionally inducing, aiding, assisting, abetting orencouraging any other person or entity to infringe Apple's copyrightedMac OS X software.Circumventing any technological measure that effectivelycontrols access Mac OS X, including, but not limited to, thetechnological measure used by Apple to prevent unauthorized copying ofMac OS X on non-Apple computers.Playing any part in a product intended to circumvent Apple'smethods for controlling Mac OS X, such as the methods used to preventunauthorized copying of Mac OS X on non-Apple computers.Doing anything to circumvent the rights held by Apple under the Copyright Act with respect to Mac OS X.
I'm not surprised that they got their butts waxed in court. They were full of Bovine *** all along. Further grasping at legal straws would only make them look more pitiful than they already do.
Considering all of the energy that they displayed throughout this whole affair, if it had been channeled into a legitimate business enterprise, it would have shown allot more profit for them, I'm sure.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Be right back: I have to start writing my fan-fiction about how Apple is a front-company that Microsoft uses to deny they have a monopoly in the computing market.
In my story, Apple would never allow anyone to run their OS on unrestricted hardware, lest it damage the mothership's market share.
Also, MS manipulates stock prices via chips in Steve Jobs' body that control his health... but that's mostly subplot.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
The more and more you read about them I wonder why they dont have any monopoly lawsuits against them...

From their website:
"Our patience has been tested but our resolve is unwavering. Psystar's vision of bringing the Mac OS to generic PC hardware is and always will be unyielding. Although Rebel EFI may be temporarily unavailable for purchase on the Psystar online store, those who purchase a t-shirt or donate over twenty dollars will receive one free copy of Rebel EFI once the court has ruled in our favor on this issue."
Should get a T-shirt and wear it in like 5-10 years and it'll be vintage lol
