Legal Now that all the nastiness of the discovery phase is behind us in the Apple vs. Psystar case, both parties are trying to get the case settled before it goes to court, much like the recent Vernor vs. Autodesk case. Both Apple and Psystar have filed motions asking for a summary judgement.

I believe you are incorrect about the argument of them using two copies. The copy on the computer is necessary to get the copy they bought from Apple (the disks) to work (this is called installing software, not copying software). Reselling the disks with the software on the computer is the same argument. Both are necessary for it to be a "legitimate working copy".

If Apple wins this round then this will surely go to the Supreme Court (likely headed there anyway). But, I don't see how they could possibly win this under the circumstances.
