Psystar representatives said they filed a countersuit against Apple on Thursday, arguing that a market could exist for third-party Mac clones, if not for the legal and technical barriers that Apple has set up.


Psystar charged Apple with restraint of trade, unfair competition and other violations of antitrust law in a 54-page complaint filed in the Northern California Division of the United States District Court and emailed to reporters.

a bit late to the story, however I do think Apple has some kind of monopoly here, admittedly even if they're just less than 10% of the market, but that's Apple/Mac 100% of that 10%.

I'll be interesting to see how this case pans out, personally Ithink Pystar is going to lose, not so much because Apple have lots of $$$ for lawyers but mainly because I think they are in the wrong, basically I think they are sponging off another companies efforts.

I agree with you on that. As soon as a company seems to do well its OMG OMG OMG THEY HAS A MONOPOLY!! I WANTS IT!!! Yeah, lets punish a company for doing well and making a decent quality product, keeping their reputation and having a half decent business plan.

Give them a break
