Psystar fork out $2.7million to Apple

Psystar fork out $2.7million to Apple

Product image

We reported yesterday that Psystar had came to a partial agreement with Apple over the legal case involving unauthorised computers being sold with OSX installed.

Today we have details on the case from yesterday and Psystar have agreed to pay Apple $1,337,500 in damages over copyright infringement, breach of contract and violation of the Millenium Copyright Act. Additional damages and fees for the lawyers accounted to this being doubled bringing the total to $2.675 million.

This payout means that Apple have agreed to not refile claims of trademark infringement, state unfair competition, trademark dilution and common law unfair competition and the agreement was signed by James G Gilliland for Apple and K.A.D. Camara for Psystar.

In a seperate filing from Psystar it appears that they hope to continue to sell their Rebel EFi product which allows people to install OSX on unauthorised third party computers – it also works with Snow Leopard OSX 10.6. This is also likely to be an issue for Apple and a further case may initiate over this software.

Psystar unfortunately are said to have assets less than $50,000 in total and have only emerged from Chapter 11 after filing for bankruptcy earlier this year. Apple have said that they believed the company would be unable to pay any damages.
