Legal The legal back-and-forth between Apple and clone-maker PsyStar continues to develop, with the latest news being a move by Apple - the Cupertino company has invoked something with many already predicted Apple would call upon: the DMCA, or the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. This was done in an amendment to the original suit, filed in July this year.

This will never go to trial.

I truly don't believe that this case will ever go to trial. Apple has way too much at stake even if they have a strong case. There is just no way Apple will not take a chance in losing this case. If Psystar prevails by some remote chance, this will set a precedence that will destroy Apple's Mac hardware business. Most likely what will happen is Apple will pay Psystar undisclosed sum of money to make this entire situation go away in a hurry. This DMCA addition to the suit is merely to make Psystar's lawyers nervous.
