Strike one for Apple.
Curling is a better sport anyway - the first end goes to Apple. The Cupertino company sued clone maker PsyStar
for licensing and trademark violations and copyright infringement, only to be greeted by a counter lawsuit from PsyStar
, who claimed Apple was a monopolist. U.S. District Judge William Alsup sided with Apple on the counter lawsuit Tuesday
. In his 16-page decision Tuesday, Alsup ruled Apple's products don't constitute a market to dominate. As a consequence, Apple then can't be considered a monopolist, Alsup wrote. An Apple spokesman had no comment. A representative for Psystar couldn't be reached for comment. The original lawsuit is still running, so PsyStar can, for now, continue selling its clones.
