Tech: Pystar death star: Apple clones dealt another murderous blow

  • It’s unfortunate, but Apple was in the right legally. There are tons of side issues in the Mac clone case to end all Mac clone cases, but Pystar – which had famously been selling generic noisy black boxes and putting a bunch of Mac software on them – is done. Apple has them from just about every avenue possible – copyright infringement, derivative works, misuse of copyrights and DMCA violations. As a result, the case that would’ve allowed Hackintoshes has only ended up protecting the Mac business model instead. Sorry, Pystar. source
