Legal The week isn't even over yet, and we already have another instalment in the Apple-Psystar soap opera. Psystar has filed a new lawsuit in the Florida Southern District Court in Miami, asking for an injunction and damages because of Apple's "anticompetitive attempts to tie Mac OS X Snow Leopard to its Macintosh line of computers".

All this will do is extend the court case further and thereby increase the cost.

now, lets consider who has the deeper pockets here..

I feel I have made my thoughts on this issue clear in previous posts so won't repeat them, BUT unless the case is allowed to go to completion and a verdict reached then this issue of EULAs will continue to go in circles without a resolution.

Stop making up new ways to sue each other and let a decision be reached!

Probably Apple, but I suppose it depends on who is actually funding Pystar.

However, this case has become so convoluted (by both sides) that it no longer will provide a good grounds on whether or not EULA's are legally binding or not.

this is my point. It would be cheaper and more helpful for a ruling to be made on this one issue rather than all this finger pointing!
