Legal 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.

Very good analysis.

Unfortunately the world is far less ideal than what the founding fathers had envisioned in their time. Greed rules the current day.

Actually, human weakness and greed was precisely what the founding fathers had mind when they designed the way this country should work. Where things broke is when the federal government began growing it's powers unopposed by the states. In today's society there is way too much power held at the federal level, which acts as the catalyst for the majority of issues that we're dealing with today (including too much money in government).
