Legal Apple has filed a suit (more details) on July 3rd against Psystar in the northern district of California. Psystar dubbed its cheap Mac Clone as Open Computer and started shipping them around April of this year.

Seeing as you clearly didn't work there I'll put it bluntly, by stating that the Clone Market didnt' grow the Apple market but cannibalized pre-existing Mac customers.

...a result that was only possible because Apple couldn't (and still can't) kick their addiction to exorbitant profit margins, which made it laughably-easy for the cloners to beat Apple on price. Apple might as well have been wearing a "Please out-compete me" sign around their collective neck.
